games won't work

  blodwick 10:10 13 Jan 2004

My friend has two games, old max payne & splinter cell. After going through the install proceedure and everything being hunky dory he gets this message when trying to play both games;"PLEASE INSERT CORRECT CD ROM AND RESTART APPLICATION".Does anyone know what is going on here?He has reinstalled & uninstalled& re.....Any advice gratefully received..Thanks..

Has he tried any patches for the games?

They are the proper CD's? Just if he has tried to back up his CD's the games dont like it.
