Hi GLASGOWRANGER, never heard of "Safedisc". What is it and what disk is it installed on?

You do know that a "virtual drive" is not a Drive but one that acts like one

buteman, So this appears to be a program that is put on a disk first, before a program is put on it like say "Word",to prevent the disk being copied. So what programs GLASGOWRANGER, are you trying to install that has "Safedisc" on it? and surely you are installing Progs to your C: drive?

Safe disc from the Link as nothing to do with loading a OS. It is copywrite software for if you burn a CD or DVD disc. so no one can copy it

its on my just flight traffic disc for flight sim x. it seems to me as i only have one drive on my pc which does the lot including burning cds the pc thinks i am going to copy the disc instead of installing it. i have turned of av and firewalls etc but still no luck.

When you put the disc in the drive, cancel anything that comes up, then go into "my computer" and click on the drive you put the disk into ie. E then click on the flight disc and look for install or EXE and click on that

Further, were there no instructions with or on the flight disc to tell you how to install it?

I may be totally wrong, but I think if you attempt to put this on a Virtual Drive, in effect you are copying it which SafeDisc will not permit.

even if you put the disc in the drive and click my computer and click on drive E which is the only one i have an hourglass appears and sometimes i get the message please insert a disc into drive E.i did not know till i bought the product it was a safedisc. even going to run and typing e:\run.exe still gets no must think i am going to copy it somehow.
