As the title says. I'm pretty sure Uru would run a lot faster if I'd put it on my hard drive, provided it would run at all....

Has anyone put Uru on their hard drive yet? Was there anything you had to do to get it to run without the CD? =D

. . . the ending has not yet been written . . .

If you've installed Uru from the CD, it is in fact on your hard drive. For Win 98SE, look at C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\Cyan Worlds\Uru - Ages Beyond Myst. These are the Uru files, and that's as fast as you can get.

If you're getting "Cannot locate the CD-ROM Please insert the correct CD-ROM." errors, check out the posts at http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=8271034&m=41910521. Also, check out maztec's excellent 'Uru Technical Problems Guide' at http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=8271034&m=1161008.

The only way you can run without the CD is to have registered on-line for the Prologue and gotten your acceptance E-mail. For some insight on the acceptance E-mail, check out http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=8271034&m=8601057&r=96410721#96410721.

The only reason URU checks your CD is to make sure you actually have it.

To be honest the copy protection on the Prime CD is fairly limited.
