Operating system?

Sounds like autoplay is switched off.

XP -- my computer -- right click cd drive--properties-autoplay tab

Theres no mention of auto play in properties

I think what is happening is, when you insert your Game disco in the drive, the Game its self is looking for files on your PC which relate to CD Coping software. (I think they call it Safe Disk or something).

You have to make sure Clone CD files are completely removed from your PC or Games with this security software will not play, as you have discovered.

Perhaps you could try searching for files containing the words Clone CD and remove any found....

I'm sure some more experienced Members will be able to help further or click here try a look here...

Sorry not trying to lead you on a "song and dance" ;-)

disco = DISC

Clone CD should only give you a 30 day free trial, well it did.

I would use system restore, you should have enough points to go before this, and try that.

could always uninstall cd & dvd software, do a clean up and then re-load them, testing cd before loading dvd software. Also can't find autoplay in xpr pro with or without xp2
