question regarding play disk emulation

ok..heres my situation....
i have a older game called Casanova..
its a 2 cd game...during install only cd1 is needed for the game..cd2 is the play disk..i scanned the cd and it says theres no protection(used game jack scanner)..i copied the play disk(cd2) to hd and tried making bin-cue,iso,mds,etc so i could try to emulate the play disk without using my original cd.(i dont want to screw up my main cd)..
does anybody have any tricks or suggestions on how i could make this work??
i dont want to use a cd at all...(im aware that i could just make a backup of the play disk but dont want to if i dont have to..)

thanks for your time...

If the game isnīt protected, try with an CD/DVD emulator how daemon-tools, or virtual drive of alcohol 120 %. Mount image (bin/cue, mds, etc) and try it.

Anyway, check it protection with "a-ray scanner" too.

What is the error message? , could help about causes.

Maybe, the game search at installation drive. For example, if you install game in drive E:, and the virtual drive is F:, maybe, in some *.cfg or in windows registry, there is information about drive, and search only in E: .Was usual in old games.

Search for *.cfg in directory game and edit with notepad, or search for "casanova" in windows registry (regedit.exe), for look any keys about drive letter, and if you find it, change keys to virtual drive letter. Take care in windows registry.
