Default how do you make it so you can play ubi-soft games on an rw drive?

I've been wondering about this for a long time. I know it's stupid of me not to know the answer already, but I don't.

Anyways, I don't have a ROM only drive and so I was wondering how I could play ALL games on my RW drive?

It doesn't make a whole hell of a lot of sense that you would need a rom only drive to play ALL games b/c 1/2 the oems/system builders don't even offer a rom only drive.

I never have and never will be into recording CDs b/c I've always had a rom only drive, up until now.

Uhhh, what? I can't say I've ever had a problem with using a RW drive to read a disc....infact I haven't had a CD-ROM drive in close to 5 years now....

The reason that bad things happen to you is because you're a dumba**.

I had thought that Ubi Soft put on all of their games something like, "may not work with writable drives."

It could have something to do with piracy.

But thanks to everyone for replying.

I guess I won't have any problems.

It wasn't the disk that would have issue it was the Copy Protection the game used, many protections in the past had issues with a Burner installed in the PC but it was extremely rare in most cases, just like the people who complain about starforce. Very few people had issues but the ones that did cried loud about it.

I'll try to phrase these highly complex hax0r instructions in terms that you can understand kevpla1.

Press the "eject" button.

Place the game disk in the trey.

Press the "eject" button again.

Click yes to whatever comes up on the screen.

You use the eject button to retract the tray? Im use to just slightly pushing it so it automatically goes in...
