    I just bought a new macbook pro 13".

    I have recently installed a couple new games. I would like to play them with out carrying around the disc.

    I have done this in the past with daemon tools and have some experience with a pc.

    I would love a walkthrough with a mac. I cant seem to find a place that gives you a step by step.

    Thanks all.

    There's no surefire way that works for all games. Some games (typically older ones) won't bug you for the CD if you mount a disk image. For a very few, this will work with images created using Disk Utility; for a wider set, this will work if you use a utility like Toast to create the images. Most more recent games, however, don't accept the images, so unless you want to resort to more dubious means (i.e., no-cd cracks), there's not much you can do about needing the CD to play.

    Of course, purchasing downloaded games is also a good alternative, since there's no CD to begin with.
