    I don't know if it is possible, but not having a DVD drive in these days of multi-dvd installs, and PC DVD Games is a huge set back to your pc's setup. I would suggest buying dvd drive.

    Here is a Samsung Drive which will burn all formats,has lightscribe capabilities, and uses a IDE connection. $30.99 w/ free shipping

    And HERE is a link to 7 drives all between $28-$38 dollars some with free shipping some without (shipping usually $3-$4). All drives can burn CD's and DVD's at multiple speeds and are manufactured by reputable companies.

    All these drives are sold at http://www.newegg.com a very reputable online electronics dealer.
