hi,
my old dvd rom has just been taken out of my computer, and has now been inserted into my friends computer.
Now the problem is, the drive is detected by windows and is displayed in the my computer explorer.
So seeing that it was detected we inserted a a game that needs a dvd rom to run.
But for some reason the game does not load and when we clicked on the drive in my computer it says insert a disk.

Whats the problem?
can anyone help us?

Thanks

Ben

Did you uninstall the old driver and install the new drivers for the DVD.

Also check you are running the latest Direct X on the PC
