    Bought copy of Driving Test 2012 and when running it, the laptop drive goes crazy so made a img with imgburn then tried Winmount and Poweriso to emulate it and it detects its copied or emulated. Whats the best software that can beat it? Had a problem like this 2-3 years ago but cant remember which software successfully bypassed it.

    I think Daemon Tools would do this, it has the bypass' for SecuROM and ProtectCD. Here is the link. Just use the free trial for the Lite or Advanced versions.

    I forgot
    I'd argue both Daemon tools or Alcohol 120 or whatever the non-paid version is called. Both have worked well for me, and I can't seem to choose which one is better.

    Power ISO is a good tool as well.

    After D-tools started packing spyware, I switched to alcohol 120. I also hate PowerISO. Alcohol does everything I need.

    I'm not saving the day, just adding my input. PowerISO caused my computer so many problems in the couple months I used it that I hate it. That doesn't mean I'm telling anyone what to get or not, just that I prefer Alcohol 120%.

    Daemon Tools supports a variety of disk images, including the problematic Dreamcast multisession disk images (one data, two audio), GC disk images, heck, even CUE sheet bin images.
