Default How to use a MDF file on my computer so I don't have to load it everytime i use

I have a .mdf file which is a game. Everytime i run game it asks for cd, so I guess i have to somehow boot it or something virtual drive. How do I just extract it to my computer so I can use the game normally?

You cant. You will have to mount it everytime. No game will just run from the drive unless you get a no-cd patch which is against the rules here to discuss. Cause most of them are illegal.

So either mount it everytime or google will be your best friend.

Download Alcohol 120% (trial version expires after 30 days) and create virtual drives. Make an .iso of the game and mount in a virtual drive. Run from that location. Works with every game I own.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.
