All the license agreements I read say I can make a backup copy.

I know how to copy folders to the desktop then burn them to a cd. The game does not work with the backup created that way.

Are we STILL going through this horsehockey?!

8-(

What do I have to do? write MS and show them a receipt?

I guess that with "backup" they mean a second installation done on a different HD.

The only way to do it is by copying the CD.

Thanks Andrea. I guess you know this, but what if I inadvertantly step on the CD and physically break it?

I could have the program on 100 HDs. Without the CD the game will not run.

Okay Peter, so what is the trick? Gold CDs? My K-Mart specials appear to burn the data with no problem, but when the new CD goes in the drve and I try to open the game it keeps calling for the CD to be loaded.

You should copy it with Nero. I did that, to save my orininal CD that was getting badly scratched. You need Nero 7 if you have XP with all patches, especially service pack 2 because that disables the copying mechanism in Nero 6 .
