problem with game cd

  chrissy1 11:47 30 Jul 2007

Wonder if anyone can help...yesterday i defragmented and disk error check....i have latest java installed.
My son bought a new copy of Football Manger but when he puts it in..a window comes up "Cannot locate CD-ROM"..and another saying "No Java runtime found on this system.....
Installshield wizard said "Verifying Java 1.4 then please select JVM by selecting its Java exe file..thats where i got lost!!!Do i have to reinstall Java 1.4???
Son played the game a couple of days before from a pevious cd of football manager without any probs..but had to buy a new one as it got a crack in it....He's dying to get his game up and running again so would be grateful for any help..

Can you still see the CD or DVD drive when you open `My Computer`?
