    I just won a copy of Knights of the Old Republic off of ebay. I tried to copy all the discs, only to find that the first one is protected by SecureROM that Alcohol 120% couldn't seem to defeat. Maybe I used the wrong settings.

    I have a bad track record of fumbling discs in such a way that they wind up under my caster, and I can't locate them until I try to pull back from my desk and hear a crunching noise. Consequently, I'd really like to play from a backup disc. Is there an easy or legal solution that won't cost me more money somebody could link to so I don't have to risk viruses and trojans by searching for a cracked copy on the pirate bay?

    I don't care if it will install on somebody else's computer, I just want to be able to play on backups with my originals in a separate, safe place. Something I've been doing since the age of floppies for over 22 years.

    I just thought of another question. Is KOTOR like Baldur's Gate in that I need all four CDs handy, or is it like Neverwinter Nights in that I only need the PlayCD once it's installed?

    If it is like BG, is there a way to make one DVD instead of all these CDs?

    I use imgburn to back up all my games, and I've never had a problem with DRM. If you haven't tried it, get it here: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

    As for the second question, I can't really say, I've only played this particular game on xbox. Sorry :)

    I'm a little late to the game, but you can always avoid the issue entirely by downloading a crack and playing without the CD. You own the damn thing, so you shouldn't be breaking any laws.

    I usually don't go for those "no-cd cracks" as they require me to do a larger than normal install, however I found out that in this case KOTOR does a full install anyways and wound up doing things that way.
