Have you patched the game yet? Atari puts the protection in, then Bioware disables it in their patches ;-) I had that problem trying to do that before I patched the game :-)

hmmm...

I installed the game with the copied CDs.  Then I patched.  Then I tried to play the game only to see that I need to use my original CD.  Tell me if I need to do things in a different order.

Errr.... hm. That I don't know.

I've read that every once in a while, there have been some people unable to run it on their PC due to the copy protection, but it's pretty rare.

Try the help forum on nwn.bioware.com

They have answers for almost anything ;-)

Stupid question time, but you do have RMPS enabled in Alcohol's Emulation options, don't you? (RMPS = Recordable Media Physical Signature, allows Alcohol to fox most kinds of physical protection) You also have to burn RMPS when doing the CD-to-CD copy.

YEAH!  :D

Last night I was able to successfully mount an image using Alcohol.  The main trick was the Datatype drop down option.  It is a drop down of all of the different protection scemes.  So you choose one and it automatically sets all the other options.  The other thing I did was to slow the read and write speed way down.

Anyway it worked.  Thanks for all your help and for putting up with all my wailing and lamenting.

There are three securoms.

Just fair warning....

I just purchased NWN so many n00b questions to follow. Hopefully it will be in this week.
