    Was just gifted a new Lenova Thinkpad with Windows 10, after my old unit crashed. I'm jonesing to play Rise From Erebus again!
    Problem: no disc drive. I have an older LG usb disc drive, and can't seem to properly load Civ4, although I did get Colonization working just fine.
    Question: were it you, would you:
    A) buy a digital download of Civ4 and BTS?
    B) buy a newer usb disc drive?
    C) Or?
    Thanks in advance for any advice. I live in the middle of nowhere, and don't always have internet access, so I rely on many hours of the excellent Civ4 mods to help maintain my sanity, such as it is.

    Honestly, either the first or the second option would solve your case, so you just gotta weight the plus and minus aspects and choose yourself. Hope you'll be able to enjoy the game soon enough! A digital download is always an option of choice for me, and if you're looking for a place to do so, try Eneba, arguably the cheapest Civilization games around.

    Best wishes!
