    As with many games, a couple of the games I bought recently were only locally available on 4-5 CDs, instead of DVD.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to create an "install DVD" from the several CDs and perhaps the latest patch for said games. I have a DVD burner, and access to a lot of different software options, I'm just starting to research and hoped OT C&P could save me some legwork.

    TIA.

    depends on the game. Usually you can merge the cds, tho. Sometimes it will prompt for the cd, other times it will not. Depends on the game, really. As an example, Windows MCE can be slip-streamed to 1 CD, even though it comes with two from MS.

    yeah... that was my thinking. Even if it prompted for the next CD, the "cd" would actually be in the drive already, I just need to figure out how to let the computer know that. hmmm.
