My stepson recently bought a PC game "Ancient Wars - Sparta" which will not run on our PC. After several attempts I noticed the following in the instruction booklet "NB This game is protected by copy protection. The DVD must be inserted into the DVD-ROM drive to play the game. Unfortunately our DVD drive appears to be DVD+/-RW. Does this mean that this particular game is useless as far as our PC is concerned, or is there any way round this?
Many thanks for all your answers. I'll try to answer the questions raised. 1 I can play ordinary DVD's 2 I don't appear to have any copy/clone software installed. 3 The game is compatible with my o/s. It installs up to a certain point then an error message appears asking if I want to "carry on to debugging" or "cancel". No matter which option I choose the screen freezes at that point. 4 I haven't tried to explore the disc. As soon as I place it in the drive, Autorun takes over and installs it up to the point mentioned above.
