Default Make a exact CD copy

I'm trying to make a "backup" copy of a game that I have but when I try to play the backed up copy, I get an error message saying "please insert play disc", which is already in the disc drive. I was told that when you make backup copies of games, that it doesn't copy some files and that's why I can't us it. Does anyone know how I can make a copy of this game and use the backup disc to play the game?

It is better to use a cd rom emulator,make a vcd of your cd and play the game from your harddrive.

Sometimes there's Anti-Burning stuff in the games. Thats's why you should use Alcohol 52% or 120%

actually. no cd patches will work better if u get the ASPI update I found out for soem odd reason. he he. also it will help take decryption out as well off dvds and help them play better. I recommend you all do so.
