PC games don't recognise CD in drive

  chrismuir 22:22 24 Oct 2004


Have recently updated my PC. Have a DVD RW as my D drive and CDR as my E drive. Have installed a number of games (using the DVD drive) and when I now try to play them the games can't find the required game CD that I have put in the DVD drive. When I put a CD in the D drive, it autoplays quite happily, but when I click on 'start' to play the game, it doesn't seem to be able to find the CD.

Managed to get around this for Doom by finding a no-cd crack, but don't want to have to do this for all. I did wonder about changing the drive letters assigned to the DVD and CD so that the CD is my D drive and the DVD is my E, how do I do this?

Any suggestions??

a drive read error, have all your games having the same problems or just a few ?

How about opening up the CD with the game in and then opening the game from within the CD Contents ?

Why have you started 2 threads on the same subject

Sorry, meant to delete this one as I didn't explain the problem very well. Have posted more info in my second attempt.
