Yes, if it is protected then you will definatly need to use a crack and you may not even be able to copy all of the files, as some may contain read errors.

You can, Using CloneCD, you make an image of the CD you want to burn at 1x, so the protection is copied too. Then you burn the image to another cd. The bad thing is that the cd you will burn from the image will be copy protected too. Making an image of the copy protected cd you want is the only way I know for copying cd's like that. Now, copying only the files to your HardDrive, I think celtic_druid is right.

You can download clone cd from their webpage:


It is shareware, I bought the complete version, so I don't know what the limits of the shareware version are.

Hope it Helps
