Wow... we really have to have our game in the drive? That sucks. Hopefully someting like Daemon Tools will work. I am a loyal and purchasing customer and I don't lend the game out to anyone, so I don't see why it's not possible to give us the feature of playing the game without the disc. I love the game a lot, and I collect all the GTA games, the last thing I want to see is my GTA IV disc being played to death by staying in the tray for a long time!
