Playing without CD possible?

Recommended Posts

I recently had a new computer but unfortunately, this new computer doesn't have a CD/DVD drive.

Is there any way I can download AoE3 online using the key in the box? I still have the box, the CD, and the key code. 

If not is there any external CD/DVD drives you recommend which are not too expensive nor ***. (I'm a student, so financially wise limited :p)

Many thanks!

As far as I am aware, if you have the box version, you MUST play with the CD in the CD drive.  The biggest problem is, if the CD ever breaks, you have to buy new.

However, if you have the Steam version of the game, you don't need a CD.  You buy it once, then just download it directly.  You have unlimited downloads.  Once you buy the game, it is yours.
