    You can't back up a game with plain-jane burning software. The first thing you need to do is download A-Ray Scanner to find out what copy protection your game uses.

    http://www.aray-software.com/

    Then you need to read the guides about backing up the various protections that are in bold print at the top of this forum.

    You should find out whether your model burner is up to the task by reading this thread:

    That being said, BlindWrite5 and Alcohol 120% are two very, very good programs for backing up protected games.
