Play a game from hard drive instead of DVD disk Tags: PC gaming DVD Games Hard Drives External Hard Drive Video Games Last response: December 26, 2009 4:45 PM in Video Games Share OakmanNZ December 26, 2009 12:06:20 AM Hi, Is there a way to install a game on an external hard drive (or C drive) and have it play without having to burn it to a DVD disk? My house is out of DVD's, really wanna play and stores in New Zealand closed for the time being. Anyone know of a way to do this? Thanks in advance.
