OnlyCurious... use GameCopyWorld - Mirrors - No-CD, No-DVD Patches, Game Fixes, Trainers & Cheats Has quite a few no cd/dvd patches that I use =). Oh, and btw: as long as you own the original game: it's perfectly legal to use those. <<< Figured I'd say that so I don't chance it getting it trouble for linking you xD. And if you download games, you usually can't play online multiplayer anyway xD.

"Requiring a CD to play doesn't really mean that it is reading any data from the CD rom drive."

I thought the game data is read through the hard drive but the secure rom crap that requires the cd I believe is utilizing the cd/dvd rom. Regardless, it is a slight performance boost to run games with no cd/dvd......for whatever reason.

no whiney noise!! plus it removes stuff like safedisc... annoying safedisc... btw if u get daemontools, don't install their toolbar (read during the setup) the toolbar is an adware, the rest is safe

I've downloaded daemon tools, but it doesn't let you play games like FEAR and DOOM3 with an image disc. I couldn't figure it out anyway. The startup menu's to the games work but it never starts the game.

Get something like sd4hide, and run it in the background while you play your games. Then when you're done, just hit the 'restore' button. Doing it that way takes more time IMO, and just using a nocd/dvd works just as good if not better (i've even been able to update a game for online play [AvP2] with a no cd/dvd in place).

And to stay on topic... The more you use your drive, the less it'll last. Using the laser to burn discs will wear the laser out faster than just using it to read discs, though.
