    Alright i finally got my torrents to start working so i am one step closer to getting my burnt games! But i dont have a dvd burner so i was wondering if i could take the torrent i download at my house and send it to my friend in an email and burn it because he has a dvd burner. If so, how do i do this?


    Thanks

    Well unless you download it onto your friends computer from the torrent, or split it into 700mb sections and burn it onto cd's (which I assume you can burn) then combine the files you split on your friends computer. Then it would be possible. But both processes dont seem worth it to me. I would suggest saving the $30 for a DVD burner.

    Alright. I thought maybe i could just email it somehow and open it at his house. I was gonna buy a dvd burner if this worked anyway i just wanted to make sure first.

    You can get a really big jumpdrive go to his house and then burn it there.

    Or, if he's a bit of a geek, he wouldn't mind grabbing his DVD drive and bringing it to your place. You can also get an external hard drive (not a flash drive) and put it on there.

    Im just gonna buy an 8gb flash drive and put the game on it and take it to his house and then when i want to do a new game i will just erase the old one. That will be cheaper than buying a dvd burner.

    You don't need to buy anything if he says he'll take out his DVD burner and loan it to you. Just offering that. :tongue:

    Also, the average DVD burner is less than forty dollars, a tiny bit more than a good size flash drive like you've spoken of.
