I have a 3 year old PC and it does not have a DVD player on it. We got a new game and it requires a DVD player.

Here's my question: My laptop has a DVD player on it. If I download the game from my laptop onto a flash drive, will it play on my PC?

This will be a temporary problem as I intend to get a new PC in Feb when the new triabit (trilobite?, trilebite?, whatever) drive comes out. Or until we get a DVD and install it on the PC to make do until the new one.
