as the title suggests, i have all the old games so i guess i could make the iso myself but thought this would be a bit quicker

this is all since my new build will probably have no disc drive

Buy a cheap external dvd drive then to use.

Old games got crazy with copy protection for a while and it's not as easy as just putting in a disc and say make iso. They are all kinds of bad sectors they put on there, all kinds of tricks that make it a pain to copy.

Also not that installing from an iso a lot of times will then involve some sort of no-cd patch.

I get you are trying to backup your legally owned games to install on a new machine, but it's more of a hassle than it's worth. They had to go to extreme lengths to copy discs back then.

Now it's all online serial-key validation.
