you dont. what you're suggesting is piracy and helping you do this will only serve to give the authorities a reason to close down the community. If you want to run a backup buy the game, and follow the tutorials. If you still have problems backing up a legal owned copy, then come ask us for help.

You need to make an ISO. There are a lot of methods out there. I use Craxtion.
Then I use DVD Decrypter to burn the image. There are lots of ISO creators out there and lots of burner software. Your drive will probably come with Nero, you can use that to burn the ISO. But you need to create the ISO first.

What file extensions do they come in as? Also don't you have a main folder in which all 3 files are put in?

Since a pc dvd drive wont read an original disc, one might wonder how he got that to work.....

Put the files in a folder. If you use craxtion, select create ISO, it will ask you where you are getting the data, point to the folder and then click ok. It will ask you where to save the ISO, make sure that you do not save the ISO in the folder you created for the files. Save it somewhere else. It will then create the ISO for you.

I have to apologise then, I didnt mean to be bitchy about it.

Perhaps the easiest way to do this is for you to ignore the file on the computer, and just redo the whole process at your house.
