    i have aprogram that is on 9 dvds.
    I copied them to my hard drive and the program works fine.
    them i copied them to my external HD and i cant figure out how to get it to work.
    Since i have 1 dvd drive,i dont want to have to swap dvds out everytime i need info from a different dvd. Thats why i want to run it from my external.

    Is this even possible? I read about mapping, but im not sure how to do it.

    Did you ISO the DVDs?
    If not then that's really what you should do in most cases, then you mount them something like DaemonTools and they should run just fine.

    once i install the installation disk, i input a request.
    then it tells me which disk to insert in order to find the info i requested.

    To avoid swapping disks everytime i ask for info, i want to store it on my external.(not enough room on my comps HD),

    Use a program like Nero or alcohol 120 that allows you to make ISO's of the DVD's.
    Then create 9 virtual drives and mount each DVD to a different virtual drive.
    You would use Nero or Alcohol to set up the virtual drives as well.
