    i believe i've asked this same question my own fair share of times. basically..... your best bet is to copy the contents of each CD onto your hard drive, each CD in differently named folders (CD1, CD2, CD3, etc...)... and just work with creating image files to mount and run. i made my own World of Warcraft DVD in this manner. Different games may use a different CD labeling system. maybe search google. there might be someone who has done so with those games before.

    If there is a DVD version of the game you could always use a torrent or something to download it. Since you have a legit copy doing this is legal, you're just getting different media.

    i got the HL2 Collectors Edition with the DVD installer. i don't even use the DVD anymore though, seeing as either way it still has to unlock the software. now i just have a backup of my steam games. much easier, and don't have to worry about going through a kiloton of bandwidth to download the DVD

    This page is a good resource for things of that nature. There's a whole forum about many games on the subject.

    U never need to use the dvd, u dont even need to use to install the games, or download them. If you loose the dvd but still have the key, you can always get the game back.
