Something I can get so it can read CD's.

I really wanna play halo on it.

and that leads to another question.
is there anyway for me to put my full halo pc game (already downloaded on my desktop) onto a flash drive and install it to my HP mini?

HALP
IIRC you can just dump the program files across, providing you have DirectX and everything else installed.

IIRC = If I remember correctly
I'm saying all you need to do is copy the program to a flash drive and it should work.

I tried that but it will only copy the shortcut. so how do I access the whole file so I can copy it?

You need to find it within your program files.

All you should need to do is copy the folder.

yeah I just thought of that lol
thanks bro, you've been a big help

so if I wanted to put age of empires on my laptop, just do the same thing?
Er...you do realize that you're not going to have the registry entries, and since it's a netbook there's pretty much a zero percent chance that the games will even be playable, right?

In older games this typically isn't a problem.
