    i downloaded a halo.iso file as well as a bin/cue file so i could back up my own copy of the game. but ive tried alcohol 120% and nero but both of them when i put the cd into the drive and try to install it nothing happens. so i extracted the bin file on to my hard drive using winiso and it then installed fine and i was able to play the game but it did not run very smoothly unlike the original. then the next time i went to play the game again using the backed up version i got an erro message saying please insert cd? wot has gone rong? and could some one tell me how i can back up the game so i can run it off the cd instead of extractin it to the hard drive. i have tried every thing i can think of. plz help!

    Goddamn my memory is failing me..... Halo is SafeDisc2.7? or 2.8? I dont friggen remember. In any case.........
    If you need to burn a SafeDisc2 protected game the major consideration is the drive doing the copy; certain drives have certain characteristics that give them an easier time to perform SafeDisc2 copies than others. Such drives are described as being 2-sheep burners. Drives not quite up to the task (however capable of), are described as 1-sheep burners and heaven forbid, 0-sheep burners. So the first thing you need to do is to find out what make/model your burner is and if it is a 2-sheep burner or not. To determine your make and model of your optical drives; if you happen to have Nero Infotools installed, start it up and under the Drive tab, it will list all the relevant specifications and capabilities of your burner. The actual name of your burner is listed in the drop-down box at the top (those numbers before the name of your burner are important too!). You can get InfoTools from http://www.cd-rw.org/software/cdr_software/cdr_tools/nero_info_tool.cfm Once you have determined tha name of the burner, head on over to http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/45121 to see if that burner is listed there or not. If it is listed there, it is a 2-sheep burner; if it is not listed there it is not neccesarily a 2-sheep burner but highly unlikely. Now if you have a 2-sheep burner head on over to http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/23699 to find out how to copy a SafeDisc2 protected game. If you are running a 1-sheeper than visit http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/36444 for the appropriate guide.
