OK update time everyone. Just in case anyone is curious, I am NOT able to play the retail version of the game of burned .ISO copies of the discs, it fails the authentication. Install took all of a minute in a half but playing the game is a no go. Now me and my fool self remembered the flawless widescreen program, which never worked for me before by the way, and figured why not so I tried it and voila it works perfectly. So I have widescreen KOTOR 1 and 2 now on the retail discs. Which means if I want to keep playing, I'm gonna have to buy a external drive. Slightly disappointing but not terribly surprising. Most new hardware, comes with stuff needed on a disc anyway so its not like it will be entirely unused beyond games. I want to thank everyone for their help and even though my original issue was unsolvable, I'll just shell out a little money to get another solution.
