Loading MS Word problem

  muscic lover 18:06 10 May 2005

I have a new laptop and have an old copy of word (legitamate , 100% real disk) and works 2000.
I am trying to load it onto my laptop via the DVD drive (which can read music CD's). It cant even see any files on the disk! so i cant load MS Word.... and i would like to carry on using it!
I have the authenticity code and all the required details.
I have windows XP home on my PC.... any ideas why it wont load???

Will MS Works work with XP??

Any ideas?!
Thanks for helping.

Try running in "compatible" mode. (This runs older W98 programs)

Click Start, All programmes, Accessories, Scroll down To Compatibility Wizard
