    My kids have several games that require the CDs to be in the drive in order to play them. Is there a work around for this? It would be so much easier if they could just click the shortcut and not need us to help them with the disc.

    Thanks

    You can setup virtual CD/DVD drives on your machine and then rip the cd into a special image file to use with the virtual drives. I think Nero is capable of doing this, as are several other software packages.

    Thanks Darren. Setting up a virtual drive was easy and now the kids can just click and play.
