    Please re-read your question, when it dawns on you that no one can figure out what you are asking, please edit your question to be legible.
    How about we name it Bob? If you call it Hilary, it won't work and will really screw up your system.
    What is the name of the game you pirated?

    No prob, most of the newer games require either a no CD crack installed to run or an original CD in a drive for verification purposes. I've learned this the hard way trying to back up CR-ROM games for my kids, they seem to break and scratch several disks per year, so I've resorted to letting them destroy the back-ups and keeping the originals out of their reach for now. Just wish the software companies would offer a cheap replacement policy for scratched/damaged disks. Sorry to drift off topic.
    Back on topic, which game are you trying to get working? what is the published name, and also the name of the .iso file or the .bin .cue file you are trying to burn? Some games look for CD-R media being present and will not run unless the presence of the CD-R is masked (Clone CD works for this). Or, you need to find something which I can't mention here which is designed to allow the game to be played without a CD in the drive..again it is dependant upon the game and the update version of the game itself to work properly. I hope that this helps a little.
