There are 2 mini images at that site. Try the other image if the first one doesn't work. I'm using image #2 btw. Also, what are you using to mount the image with?

Try using Daemon tools.

http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/port...939bc651cd3921

And enable all emulation options. Oh and to your first question. There are many other games that have these small image files to run without a crack. I use these small image files for SC:PT, LOTR:BFME, and a few other games.

Disable Alcohol if it causes problems.

You're wrong about the emulation options because the newer versions of SafeDisc and SecuROM have detection schemes to know when you're using programs like Daemon Tools and CloneCD. Thanks to the optical hardware I'm running right now, I can mount images of games with the latest copy protections (except Riddick, I have to use a backup CD-R copy I made) on CD and DVD-ROM without needing to use emulation.

I spent several hours reading articles and threads on the CD Freaks forums before messing around with software and wasting CD and DVD-R discs. I suggest anyone looking for more information do the same.

How can I be wrong when I'm simply making a suggestion? Which seemed to work from my end.

It may be the particular games you're running. From my experience Far Cry, Riddick and NFS: U2 (off the top of my head) haven't liked running with emulation on - they all cough up an error about CD/DVD emulation software being detected. If I turn it off, the games work.

Now that I think about it, it's probably a combination of the hardware used to create the image (the Lite-On DVD-166 is about the best drive for busting most current copy protection schemes) as well as the software. Hell, even different games work differently if you use Alcohol, Clone CD, Blindwrite. There are a ton of factors here. So I apologize for calling you "wrong." Just suffered from a bit of temporary myopia.

No problem. I also agree that many factors can affect the situation with the image working. But the image we're talking about was made by someone else so we have no knowledge of what was used to make it. It's also only a 2 meg mountable image for the play disk of NFSU2.

Not really. Some of us just can't stand swapping in 20 different cd's a day.

Or we want to have backups because we don't want our original CDs to get scratched/damaged.

You usually pay $10 or so for a replacement disc, I've seen. May vary.

Yeah, it's pretty ridiculous ... and that was for an old CD-based game. I don't wanna know what a DVD game would cost. I'm sure it depends on the publisher.
