Default copying a copywrited CD

if this is the wrong part of the forum for this sorry...


I need to make an IMAGE of HALO, so that I don't have to insert the CD everytime. Dumb CD is locked. Anyway around this.


I'm tired of this crap, I legally own this disc, but microsoft is still in control of it, lame

is it normal for a protected cd to take over 2 hours to rip?

hmmm... clone cd usually takes forever if the cd is scratched...

but if not, then it would only take a few minutes...

if you own the game... it's ok to download a copy...

I use Nero Image Recorder for regular data CD's and Alcohol 120% for protected CD's. I use ClonyXXL to detect the protection method.
