i just bought riven and instead of carrying around five of the cd's with me wherever i go (i have a pb), i wanted to copy the discs to my harddrive. i tried to use disccopy and made a disc image that would mount on the desktop, but riven kept asking for the cd when the corresponding image is loaded. i did this with success with my copy of Railroad Tycoon II. why won't it work with Riven? does anyone have any other suggestions?

Creating mounting disk images that appear to be CD's is how many people pirate games. I think that's why Riven has a safeguard against it...

And anyway, isn't the 3 GB+ that all the Riven disks take up a LARGE percentage of your PowerBook's hard drive? The hard drive in my PBG3/233 is only 2 GB! If I were you, I'd find better ways to use all that space, and carry around those five slim disk cases (c'mon--those Riven cases are pretty damn thin!).

Anyhow, I know that that didn't help much, but good luck!
Be happy.
