    This question doesn't really fit anywhere else... so here goes.

    Some disks are copy-protected. However, I want to use them as disk images on my computer. (On my Windows box, but the same could be applied to the Mac) Why do disk images tend to fail? Why don't they just read the raw data on the disk and turn that into an image, seeing as the program can read the disk and work based on it.
    Can't the computer take everything about a CD and replicate it into an image?

    Well, there are programs that can read the RAW data, but it'll still fail if its copy-protected.

    There's what you need to know.
