    I have a Toshiba Chromebook 2. I'm not much a computer guy. Which might be why I want to play a 20 year old video game. Anyway, the dude at Best Buy picked out an LG Ultra Slim Portable DVD Writer when I said that I needed an external disk drive. But now that I am setting it up with the Chromebook, I see that it says it is Windows and Mac compatible. I bought this thing specifically to play this game. Should I even try it? Or take it back?

    There's no way it'll work on a Chromebook, unless you can find a virtual machine for the Chromebook, and a Windows 3.1 (or 3.11) installation disk set (I don't think we had CD drives in computers before about 1995 - and I don't ever remember seeing Windows 3.x on a CD) to install to it.

    I'd bring it back if it's possible, and buy a Windows netbook. (There's still no guarantee that a Windows 3 game or a DOS game will run on Windows 7, 8 or 10. Although it's still available for download, so it might.)
