    If you're putting a DVD game into a DVD drive it should work, autodetect and so forth, but if you are putting that game into a CD drive it won't work.

    Yeah you'll need a DVD drive, but they're pretty cheap now and very easy to install.

    Good Luck

    Is that Battlefield 1942? It also comes as CD version, which is what I have, maybe you can trade yours for CD version from wherever you bought it from.
