Question by George Markham: How do you get Rome Total War on a netbook?
I've got the disc but my netbook doesn't have a disk drive so how do I get the game to play on my netbook.

Best answer:

Answer by Joe Blow
What I use is a free program called "Magicdisk", it allows you to create a copy of the install disk (or any disk) in the form of a file called an "iso".

I then used a flash drive to move the iso to the netbook (that also has Magicdisk installed).

After that, the iso can be run as if it was a "virtual disk drive" through the Magicdisk installed on the netbook. The computer basically "thinks" it is running the iso from a disk drive when its running through Magicdisk.

Works like a charm.
