Running Need for Speed Most Wanted

Have what maybe a strange problem

Managed to install the above game no problem but when I try and run the game it won't run and comes up with a message to install the disc in the correct drive.

Is this to do with the copyright protection on the disc or not

Thanks for that I've tried all the normal things, its just the literature with the game mentions that it might not work with some dvd roms due to the copyright protection on the disc.

Was just wondering if this was the case before puchasing a new one.

It also mentions updating the firmware in the dvd rom but ive tried a search of the rom and its a neverheard of unforunatly

AFREE and one heard of it

So what you are trying to load a copy?

No its a legitimate copy, I was on about buying a new DVD ROM so I could play it

AH!! clear now, does your rom drive have same probs with any other games

If you cannot find any firmware updates for it, maybe it is time to but a new one

No that the only game its had a problem with so far, I was just suprised it installed the game, then wouldn't play it
That why my question about the copyright protection on the disc stopping the game playing

Do you have two optical drives i.e. your DVD-ROM drive plus a rewriter?

Usually the ROM drive is a letter further on i.e E instead of D, so you may need to use your rewriter (not ideal) which Windows will have tagged D.
