    Do you have an external CD drive?

    You could make a disk image when you have the CD in your external drive and that way you wouldn't have to carry the drive and disk with you everywhere.

    Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility > New Image

    would the game play off a disk image? or would it think that it was pirated and block it from running?

    I'm pretty sure it would run off a DMG. They're designed to as it's legal and you should back up your CDs anyway.

    Sorry DMG = Disk image, the thing you'd create though disk utility (see my first post)

    I have a macbook air, and I use the driver from my home computer, and it is always asking for the CD which I only want to play out of home and I don't have the external drive... what can I do?

    thanks

    The only way at the moment would be to buy an External DVD drive... very annoying for macbook air users

    To be fair, I could buy a Windows or Linux PC with no optical drive in it and I wouldn't have the FM team fawning over me to find a way to play it. Granted, they'd just tell me to use Steam, but again, it's not SI's fault Macs aren't popular for games.

    To be honest they aren't popular with anyone other than iCabals and Mac Fanboys anyway, they are a dysfunctional style statement with
    no user replaceable Battery, no Optical Drive, No Ethernet, only 1 USB Port, no Microphone socket, limited HDD Storage at only 80GB, no FireWire port, only 2GB RAM which you can't upgrade, and you can buy any number of more powerful feature rich notebooks for less money in competitor models, as well as in the Mac range.
