@gamerman0203 - Thanks Gamerman. Yes I have the original disks. The main reason I want to do this is to avoid needing the disks all the time. So I can just have the lifted *.iso file on my PC and just mount to play leaving my driver for other things. Seeing I only have one ****ty 52x CD/CD-ROM driver which means it wont take the DVD format that COD2 uses. (Well i can't read it anyhow) So I use my brothers PC and then transfer via networking.
The other reason is so I can find out how to do it which really isnt a huge one.

- Found by searching "how to mount an image" in Google.
Tutorial - "Yesterday we used ISO Recorder to create an ISO image file. Now, let's mount it as a virtual CD-ROM on our PC. To mount the ISO image file, we are going to use a free piece of software called Daemon Tools.
The first step is to download Daemon Tools. Make sure you get the latest version! During the installation, make sure you uncheck the DAEMON Tools Search Bar. You do not want that installed.
When DAEMON Tools starts, you will see a red lightning bolt icon in your system tray, near the clock. You will use this icon to interact with the Daemon Tools program.
Daemon Tools mount ISO image icon
Right click on the system tray icon and choose Virtual CD/DVD-ROM, then Set Number of Devices. Choose 1. This will create a new "virtual" CD-ROM drive on your computer. It is assigned a letter, like E:, just like any other drive on your computer.
Now that the drive exists, you can mount your ISO image file. Richt-click on the icon again and choose Virtual CD/DVD-ROM. Then select the drive that was just created - it should start with Device 0:. Then click on Mount Image.
Now simply select the ISO image file you want to mount. Daemon Tools can mount many other image file formats, including BIN, CUE, MDS, and more.
Once it has been mounted, your new virtual CD-ROM drive will act as if it has a CD or DVD inside, with the contents of your ISO image file. Try opening your virtual drive in My Computer. Windows can't tell the difference between your virtual drive and your real CD/DVD drive.
It's worth noting that some new video games require you to unload Daemon Tools before you can play the game. This is to prevent privacy. To exit Daemon Tools, right-click on the icon and choose Exit.
Also check out our tutorial on how to burn the ISO image to CD/DVD with more free software."
@mecoatwar - I tried using Alcohol but it still wouldn't read the *Disk*.
There must be something I'm doing wrong, or is it just COD2's "legality" issues which wont allow it, because of "bypassing security."
