    try using daemon tools, its free i think and itll let you rip the cd onto your harddrive then mount the images onto the program and play that way

    do a search in google

    Sounds like all you need is a 'no-cd' exe from gamecopyworld.com - simply replaces the original halo.exe file and will launch the game without the need for the original cd in the drive.

    Rooney - sorry to have to say this, but did you even bother to look for the no-cd file from gamecopyworld.com as I suggested in my earlier post? I just checked myself and there is a v1.04 fixed exe for download.

    If you have indeed downloaded the fixed exe and tried it to no avail, then fair enough - but if you haven't then I suggest you do so before asking for yet more help having not even bothered trying... :confused:

    Do you end up with spyware / viruses all over your system by installing stuff like this. I tried to get XP SP1 to load on my machine and had to use a crack which ended up installing all sorts of crap.

    No, I can honestly say that I've never had a problem with anything that I've used from gamecopyworld.com. I'm not a hardcore gamer, but I've downloaded no-cd exe files for all games that I've installed on my PC.

    In this case, the Halo 1.04 fixed exe is simply one file once uncompressed; a new halo.exe to replace the original one - the only difference being that the fixed exe doesn't require the cd to run the game.

    {Link deleted, sorry not allowed to post links to sites which promote piracy}. download the 1.04 no cd crack. then if you have winrar click on the file then extract it to the halo file on your harddrive. it will come up do you want to replace the old file with this one. just say yes then the game will work without a cd. hope it helps :clap:
