I have brought a game from a pc shop
the game installed ok the problem is when i double click on the shortcut on desk top to game the cursor turns from a arrow to a disc the i get the message cannot find original disc
the original disc if in disc drive when this occurs and after several attempts it will load then play fine
its very anoying have i installed wrong as i have un installed game and reinstalled it but the problem persists followed install to the letter.

I never use desktop shortcuts for games. I find it is best just to put the disc in the draw and let the play window come up.
