Recommended external disk drives for laptops without disk drives?

Postby AntGormz » Thu May 07, 2020 2:28 pm

Hey guys, i have a quick request.. My laptop does not have a disk drive, can anyone give any recommendations on which external disk player that would work with an older game like madden 08? Instructions on this website says to run the disk fist before modding just don't know if current external disk drives will play a game from 13 years ago.. Thanks!

Disc drive you mean? Disc vs disk is an important distinction haha.

Really any USB disc drives will do. DVD or Blu-ray. Only brands I know of that are particularly good are LG and Pioneer, but again, any one should work. Make sure it's USB 3.0 or higher if you want good read speed.

Just save the ISO file using ImgBurn on a computer with a drive already on it then transfer via usb drive. Why carry around a physical disc drive? lol.

That being said usually panasonic and toshiba make great dvd/blu ray drives that are portable or internal.
For help running madden please consult my guide and posts from fellow users here....thanks! (link below) viewtopic.php?f=22&t=17907
I'm not on site much, so if I don't respond it's b/c I haven't checked in a while.
