There is also a free software way to do what you're talking about. You'll need a PC with a DVD drive, ISO creation software (I recommend imgburn
) and a virtual optical drive mounting software ( I recommend VirtualCloneDrive
). Here's what you do. Burn your CD/DVD to an ISO file on the PC with the optical drive (I use imgburn
). Install VirtualCloneDrive
on your laptop. Copy the ISO file over to your laptop. Right-click on the ISO file and select "Mount with VirtualCloneDrive". It will appear as is you inserted the CD/DVD into an optical drive and your ISO will be mounted and given a drive letter. I have done this successfully with games and other software, but I have never tried it with a DVD movie so I have no idea if this procedure will work for that. It won't hurt (or cost any money) to try it, though.
