  • Trouble accessing CD

    I have just bought a new Dell Inspiron 1720 LapTop, and am runing Vista Business. I just tried to install one of my games (Sims 2), and it installs ok, but when I try to run it, I get a dialog box with the following message:
    "Please insert the correct CD-ROM, select OK and restart the application"
    Obviously, I have the corect CD-ROM in the drive.

    I tried installing another game (Harry Potter - Chamber of Secrets), but same error.

    I had DAEMON TOOLS installed, but unstalled it in case it was affecting it, but no luck.

    The DVD drive is this:
    TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS L632D ATA Device.
    I have the region set to Australia.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    lol bloody vista.. even though you have uninstalled daemon tools vista probably flagged it..
    go to gameburnworld and download the no-cd's for these games..then you dont have to listen to the bloody cd spinning or overheating your laptop unessicarily

      Arrrgh! Frustration. Thanks for the input. I did as you said and downloaded the Sims II No_CD patch, but when I run it, it errors with an empty error message. Any ideas?

      The HP patch just errors saying it cannot find windows.dll.

            See if you can find out which protection scheme (safedisc, etc) the games are using.

            There's probably an update for that protection scheme available.


            Of course, could just be your drive is busted or on the way out.
            “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

              iif you tried to load a game without daemon tools you might have installed starforce protection which is a bitch to crack... make sure you have daemon tools v4
              but like i said with missing drivers you will find other programs might start stuffing up too..
              if you get desperate.. ghost your exsisting setup and format.. nothing like starting again lol
