    Hope this is in the right forum and I didnt see this answered on any stickies....

    I have a PC game on DVD and I want to create a playable copy to play across my LAN.

    I have tried clonedvd2/anydvd, didnt work.
    Also tried iso buster and didnt work either.

    Would nero ultra 6 work? I have made lots of nice shiny coasters for my family for xmas and don't have room for anymore!

    Am running XP Pro with a single layer dvd burner and can successfully back up movies, just can't get this game to copy.

    Thanks for the help

    Slysoft.com has Game Jackal. I don't know if that's what you're looking for or not. The game forums are where you want to be.

    So no game forums on here I take it? I wasn't sure if I could post this here or not but afterdawn is the place for backup help.
    Where would you recommend? And thanks I will check out game jackal.
    Thanks for the prompt reply, anyhow!!

    Plenty of game threads and forums. Look under Forums at the top of your page. What you're looking for is under Consoles. DVD for Newbies is about DVD video backups.

    I do not see anything in the Console Forum for discussion about PC games.

    And the Windows Forums specify no discussion about DVD's....

    Maybe they need to add a new forum or maybe someone could lend a hand here with an answer...

    the forums apparently have changed since I joined in late 90s at the dvdxcopy site

    Games would have to have extra besides the video aspect. That means a different file structure and often different software. Not too long ago the games could be copied with DVD Decrypter and then burned. That was when the games fit a DVD5. That might still work, according to the copy protection used on the DVD. But as long as I've been around, I've not seen much discussion of PC games in the DVD for newbies section. Here is the forum description for DVD for Newbies. This forum is meant for beginners who wish to backup their DVD movies. Advanced DVD adds user videos. You might want to ask a mod where the question might best be placed.

    You're welcome. Now that your post is in the right spot, I hope you find your answer. I'll be interested to see how it's done. I was looking over a game I have. The installation disks are CD, not DVD, and there's a bunch of data files, in fact, I didn't see any DVD video files.
