FF8 problem. Need help with CD-Rom cache

  soy 17:15 30 Oct 2003


Just recently bought Final fantasy 8, but cannot get the game to work. It keeps saying 'Insert disk 1' which is already in the CD-ROM drive.

Have looked on the Eidos support site and it says I must adjust the CD-ROM cache size. The site gives instructions for windows 95 - 98, but becuase I have XP, it has different menu and tabs so I can't follow the instructions.

Is the CD-ROM cache adjustable in windows XP? If so, can you tell me how?

Thanks Spikeychris!

I tried that but didn't work so I consulted the Eidos Technical support hotline which told me that the game isn't compatible with XP.

Thanks again m8.

Looks like I'm gonna have to sell the game. :-(
