Here's my story: I have no dvd drive on my laptop, so i made an ISO of a game (KotOR 2) on a different computer, transferred it to my laptop, and "burned" the ISO to the USB drive. I installed it on my laptop. Then I downloaded a no-cd crack for the game...BUT, it turns out that no-cd cracks and intel chipsets won't run the game.

Fine...i get the regular EXE, stick in the USB drive, thinking it should act like a disc, and try to run the game: it gives me an error and says there's no cd/dvd in the drive.

WTF?! How can I get this damn USB drive to be recognized as a cd drive?!

By "USB drive" I take it you mean a flash drive.

So you tried applying a crack, but that didn't work, so you got another file, and copied that that into your USB drive? If this is what you did, you can either :

1) Use Daemon Tools to mount the ISO, or
2) Extract/Burn the ISO onto your USB drive again (replace the copy already in it), and then try running the game.
