I have a legal full copy of Battlefield 2. The 1st disk is the play disk. Can I make a copy of it and still play the game. My disk is starting to get minor scratches on it and I am worried it may not run properly once it gets to badly scratched. :whistling:

I don't think that it is legal to make a copy of the disk but you could use a product named D-Skin to prevent the disk from getting any further scratches.

Can you buy that stuff at Circuit City? Does it affect the reading of the disk in anyway, and have you tried that product?

Yes you can make a copy of the cd. Will it work when you go to play the game: nope. It will come back with "disk not found" as it is looking for the original disk.

I looked at the Circuit City site and Radio Shack for those disk protectors. Does anyone know of a similar product and where I can find them?

I was hopeing to find them locally. I guess I will have to go looking around at local tech stores to find them. We all know that company websites don't list all their products, maybe Office Depot or something similar, even Wal-Mart maybe.
