    I have Warcraft III, a perchased copy, that i have backed up on my harddrive using Nero image drive recorder. I mounted it with Nero DriveImage software and installed the game fine off the image. But when i try to play, it tells me to insert the correct CD. Im trying to back up my whole game library on my new raptor drive so that can reduce scratches and abuse on my discs. I have tried it with several different games, but none of them will play off the mounted play discs.
    Please help.

    Warcraft III is copy protected by Securom xx.xx.
    Yes, you can install from your back-up, BUT you still need to insert the original CD to play!

    I have yet to play a Securom game using a virtual drive, in fact I think its impossible. But I hope someone had success in mounting a Securom game and playing them.

    If someone has please post steps and programs.

    I've successfully mounted SecuROM games and I can't recall doing anything special or different for them. The images were read in my Lite-On 166S at 4X then mounted using Daemon Tools with all emulations options turned off.

    The game needs to be read with the right software such as BlindWrite, Alcohol 120% or CloneCD. Nero isn't very good at reading images of protected PC games. I recommend reading the image at 4X then mounting it using Daemon Tools :)
