  1. Hello,

    I recently bought this game, came home put it in my DVD drive, and it won't read the game. I have all of the req. to play the game. The mouse says that it is reading the game for about 5 seconds and then it just stops. It doesn't show that there is a disk in the DVD drive either when I go to the "my computer" part. does anyone know what is wrong? thanks in advanced :)

    Welcome to TechSpot

    How old is the DVD drive? Is the disc scratched (even new ones can be) ?

    If the DVD drive is old, it might be that it can't read the copy-protected disc.

    I'm not sure how old the drive is. around 3 years i think. and the disc isn't scratched.
