I am one of those gamers who still likes to buy physical games. I do not like to install programs like origin and steam on my computer just to run a game. So, I am looking for a way to make and exact copy of the DVD's into an ISO. That way when I need to install a game, I can just mount the ISO to do the install, which is much faster than my DVD drive reading the disk. What programs can make an exact copy to ISO? What do you all recommend! Thanks!

Thanks. Yes I understand some of the benefits but I really don't care about things such as social networking and achievements. I just play a game to enjoy by myself when the real world allows me to. Good info though, and thanks again.
Try BurnAware Free to burn disc to image. Then use WinCDEMU to mount.
But honestly, Stream/Origin are small installs and unobtrusive, they also provide other functions besides just "running a game" like keeping the game updated, achievements, multiplayer networking/friends, etc.
Everyone has such a hissy fit over Steam/Origin but from what I've seen people just do it cause it's "cool" to hate on it. I do understand if you have physical copies of the games and don't want to re-purchase the same thing.

Question then about Steam. Never used it before. Can I put in the cd keys for my current physical games and download the game when I need to through them?
