Default Backing up games

sponsored links

 
Ill start off by apologizing because im sure this question has been covered a million times over before me asking it, even though i have read through quite a few of the threads i havent read them all cause well there is alot of them
so here it is :
I have been an avid game collector since the first NES came out so when i got a PC it became no different, i purchase all my games but find quite a few getting scratched these days from my kids playing them. I have Alcohol 120%, Daemon tools, A-Ray scanner, and a Neo Burner all suggested from google searches, as well as i have a NEC ND-3550a dvd burner which seems to work great for my daughters music cd's.
So to my actual question how can i back-up my games so that my good copies arent destroyed or used as frizbees?, a link to a universal PC game dump and copy tutorial would be fine as i can use the A-Ray scanner to give me the copy protection and google past that

Thanks in advance and cheers mates

Just copy it like you would a data CD/DVD.

That won't defeat the copy protection, but the game will install.

Then use a No CD patch to play, and you won't need the CD/DVD in the drive.


That's the easiest way, and the best, as you only need the disc when installing.

I use No CD's for all my games, whether they are originals or backups.

Use Google for download locations.
