My USB Network Hub Question

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

I have multiple Computers and serials for one game, but only have one game CD.  Are there any USB network hubs that would allow two or more computers to see the same DVD ROM to access the CD ? so that each computer can verify the DVD presence, at the same time?

Please help me.

Dear Larry,

Yes you can do it easily. In the market you can find 4 or 8 port USB switch.

After connect your entire computer with the USB switch, you need to share your DVD ROM for all computers.
