    I got backups of many games but don't have the ISO's anymore. How do I go about recopying the image and burning it? I only have one dvd drive aswell.

    Thanks in advance.

    Unless you have one of the specific LG drives, you can't even read the disc, so let alone make an iso.

    You can copy a copy, just not an original without a specific drive ... he should be fine .. he just needs to fire up ImgBurn, and change the mode to 'Read' ...

    I second thebobevil, works just fine with imgburn. I have done this a few times. Get the latest one, as it is free. Choose 'create image file from disc' from the new front end menu 'EZ-Mode Picker'. Afterwards, you reburn that image you just made (4x max).

    Try starting up Imgburn, then selecting the "create image file from disc" option. Then put your backup into your dvd drive. After it's ready, start it. When it's done, you should have an image file (ISO) wherever you saved it to. Its pretty standard procedure, hope it works.
