Pamy - I think (based on the fact he talks about old discs/two new discs working/not working) he's talking about DVD/CD in a D: drive which is a CD/DVD drive but I'll wait for him/her to answer your question on that.
Podlod> You are not being particularly clear about exactly what is going on. When you say you "run them back in the drive d" are you saying that you put in a CD/DVD disk and you expect it to automatically start installing but it doesn't? Or that you get an error or something when you try this?
I've already asked this question (re: autorun above) and Pamy has asked if you are referring to CD/DVD. We can easily help you but you need to answer our questions!
He means he went into Add/Remove programs, uninstalled 2 games, when he puts the disks in the CD/DVD drive to re-install them they aren't re-installing. That is my reading of it but it ain't easy.
I think this is an autorun thing.
podlod> If my assessment is correct, and assuming you are using Windows XP, click Start, then Run, type d: and click OK. You should see any programs/files that are on the disk. If you can't then that's the problem we need to solve. If you can see files, you could try starting windows explorer and locating the d: drive and right-clicking and choosing "Autorun" if that is an option.
hi silverous, yes you are right, and I do have windows XP home. I did what you said by going to run, typed D, then I clicked what read; File///D:/autorun.inf, and then notepad came on which read; open=launch.exe icon=setup.ico If you know what I should do next, please explain in laymans language, thanks again.
