I don't have to use the original CD then, so it doesn't get damaged.
Right, if people actually do this then why did I get no responses to my thread here?

can i do the image thing with Alcohol 120%? i got free with some hardware and have never used it

I dont see how making an image will stop it from asking for the disc on starting the game though

yes you can use Alcohol 120 but since its an EA game it may not work, i've ran into a few of their games that wont run off and image
