Windows 7: create, mount and use iso image trouble

09 Nov 2015   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit
create, mount and use iso image trouble

hello and thanks to everyone in advance for all your help,

is it possible to transfer files from a game DVD to a memory USB drive and then transfer those files to a laptop that has no DVD drive and play the game?

here's the situation,
i have a PC that i play these games on and i bought a laptop that has no optical drive,just USB ports. so how can i play the games on my laptop?

I've searched online for ways to transfer the files from the disk but have yet to discover a solution that works i did come across several posts on creating a ISO image of the game but I'm not sure what to do with the ISO image after i create it.

i don't know if it has any bearing on my question to you and the answer you give but the laptop is running windows 10 and the PC is windows 7

thanks again to everybody

Use Imgburn to create an ISO from the game DVD.
Use Rufus to create a flash drive from the ISO.

Move the flash drive to the laptop and use it, should work fine, unless there is some kind of copy protection built into the DVD. If so then you may be out of luck.

You may need a USB optical drive. Some games used programed bad sectors, among other things, to prevent copies.

That's what I was referring to when I said unless there is some kind of copy protection built into the DVD.
