Hi Gerry,

I am not from Laminar Research; just a flight simmer from downunder.

To some extent I am like you whereby I want to replace Disc1 with a USB dongle just to preserve the integrity of the DVD,

The official answer I received from Laminar Research some time back when XP11 was released was NO and there was no intention or plans at that time.  It was a disappointment considering XP10 has a USB dongle available.

I have just sent an email to my contacts within Laminar to review the situation.

In the meantime the only possible solution I can offer is acquire a portable DVD drive that will allow you to insert disc 1 to run X-Plane.

Good luck
