Default Installing programs to run without CD

How exactly do I install a game/program so that it will run without the CD? I hear that programs running from the system itself are MUCH faster than programs which read from the CD/DVD player. Any info?

P.S. I am so excited!! I FINALLY have my internet system setup and running...I never thought I would be SO excited for something as simple as the internet before, but it really is like oxygen. Haha

check out a program called alcohol 120%

it allows you to copy cds as images onto your hard drive.

kewl, didn't think you could do something like that

I always find it annoying that you have to do this, especilly if you want to keep the discs in top condition... you can't exactly do that when you have to keep putting it in and out of the case all the time!

I know it's to stop people copying discs, but what about the people who have to buy another copy because the other wouldn't run anymore?!

Can I get a version of a CD/DVD emulator for free and without having to use these "30 day trial" pieces of crap?

Look for a serial key for Alcohol 120%. I would recommend serials 2000.
