Hello by the way... Before I begin, I think I should say that my knowledge of PCs isn't great. I'm a gamer and spend a lot of time with my computer, but wouldn't know one board from another. So, please understand you're dealing with somewhat of a technical novice!.. I recently acquired a copy of Patrician 3, and am desperate to play it. The installation went fine, but every time I try to play the thing it checks the disk, and spews out "disk verification error". I've never encountered this particular problem before, so I wouldn't have a clue as to why it seems to have a problem verifiying itself, or what I should do to make the problem disappear. If anyone could give me any help at all, I would be enternally grateful! Thanks!
