    With most of my Mac games, I usually copy the Play Disc to my HD in the form of a .dmg file, so that I can mount it and play like there is a disk in my computer. When I mount the image, usually, the computer recognizes it as a disk.

    But, when I tried to do this with SW Battlefront, upon mounting the disk image, it shows up as a standard disk image file, rather than a disk. Either something is encrypted in the actual disc, or OSX is having a problem recognizing it.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction so that I can successfully copy this disk to my HD?

    I know this doesn't help much, but I've had the same problem.

    My brother and I were trying to play together using one disc, but on windows. :)

    We eventually had to have one of us start the game, THEN take the disc out and give it to the other. Useless info, I know.
    But to just let you know you're not the only one. They may have something safeguard. :D

    When Aspyr released Call of Duty 2 they started using disc copy protection, much like what is used on Windows. Basically, the games checks for something on the disc (sometimes physical errors) that is not copied to disc images. If the check fails, then the game will not load until the actual disc is inserted into you drive. What this all means now is there is not a legal way to make playable backups of games released by Aspyr Media. You are basically out of luck.
