Default multiple ISO Files To DVD?

Ok, heres the problem, I have a game that uses 5 disks and I really hate the enevitable pop up "Please Insert Disk 2" So what I want to do is make ISO files from all 5 disks and burn them onto a DVD. My question is, will this make all 5 disk act like ONE Disk.
Any help is great.
I thank you in advance.
Brad....

The total files size from all 5 disks is 7.4 gigs, and the instal is 2.5, I only have a 30 gig HD. this isn't a very resonable option for me, sorry I didn't state this in my frist post.

I guess you can still do it. rip each cd as an iso file. burn them a data dual layer dvd with your burning software. then use alcohol to access them

I think you can only burn one iso per disk. You could extract all of them and burn all the files to the dvd. I dont think it would work because all of the cd's on the dvd would be in a different directory and then it would not find it.

you can if you burn it as a data disc. Especially if you put each one in a different folder

The best way is to try it and find out. It could work, alcohol 120 just looks for the iso and mounts it on a virtual drive. You would just load them from the dvd. I think it would work.

31 Virtual Drives with Alcohol 120%

I was asking about virtual drive because when i installed a game with multiple cd's i put the second disk into another drive when it asked for disk 2 and it wouldnt continue so i had to put it in the drive that had the first cd in it. so would this be the same with virtual drives? if you mounted 5 image files onto 5 virtual drives would it work or would you have to mount the images on to the same virtual drive one after another?
