Hi, many games need the cd to be in the drive in order to be able to play the games. Perhaps this is your 'problem' if you are trying to play without the cd inserted. Cheers

As already stated most programs of this type and Encyclopedia types load the 'Engine' on PC but need the disc to collect data.
If the disc is not being recognised then possible cause are 'Engine program corruption, so Rem,ove the program and re install.
Also try a standard CD in the drive[PCA cover disk?]
If this does not run then the two main suspects are
1. dirty laser - run a CD cleaner disc
This consists of a cd with a little pad and brush and a tube of cleaning fluid - just run it a couple
of times

2/ Failed laser - Replace the drive.
