Hey pit,

My roommates and I, and a couple kids on my floor play Age of Empires III and we have 4 discs, but 5 people. One of the kids doesn't play online, so I use his CD Key to make my online account.

My question is, does anybody know the best way to make a copy of the disc you need to run the game? I was trying to find a good program to make an ISO of the CD and then mount it on another disc, but I couldn't get it to work.

Thanks

It will be copy protected. Best thing to do would be just to torrent an ISO and a crack for it.

I was looking for torrents of it, but they all looked like they included all 3 discs worth of data, and all I really need is the disc 1 to play it..

I have a legitimate CD key too..

If you are trying to backup your CD for the sake of having a backup and not to let a 5th player who doesn't own the game... Now if that 5th player bought the game at one point (and therefore probably has a cd key) that's fine too. Best ways are to use Alcohol 120%. MagicISO might work too. I usually use MagicISO to burn data disks and Alcohol 120% to mount and rip CD's.

So, then...just download the first disc? Or is that too simple and makes too much sense?

Also, every AOEIII torrent I just looked at is exactly one disc.

Alcohol 120% Trial gets the job done very well.

Daemon tools is a pretty good mounting/copy protection emulating program for ISOs, MDF/MDSs (Alcohol's native image format), and others.
