I found this Open Letter to Atari an interesting protest to copy protection going too far?
I just downloaded the 1.61 patch to Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark. When I attempted to play the game, I was met with an error having to do with CD Emulation software.
It is true that I have Daemon Tools installed and running on my hard drive. I use it for the gameBattlefield 1942. I own the original CDs to the game; however, to minimize disc swapping, I have created images of these CDs, and have them mounted in virtual CD drives. This provides me the opportunity to play all the games I play on a regular basis, with a minimum of CD swapping.
