Default Will this work?

We have a game Age of Empires.....2 different copies of the game on LEGAL disks, but they are scratched enough to where we cant install on are other computer. Is there a way to copy the files onto a USB or burn as a .ISO and then use that on the other computer? I really dont want to buy the game a 3rd time....Thanks

You could give it a go. But if it wont install because of the scratches, then the burner might not be able to read the disk properly either to copy it.

Here are a couple of links that may help you:

Effective CD Scratch Repair

How to Fix a Scratched CD

You could also look into a CD scratch repair kit such as the SkipDr 10183 00 Classic Disc Repair System. I have an older one and it works pretty slick.
