View Full Version : PC World CD's

Am I alone in this or does anyone else put there have trouble with the PC World CD's? Every month I see interesting things listed on the CD's but I can rarely get the CD to run properly in my machine or to load items. I have had the problem with two separate CD drives. Any ideas please?

dunno...I usually have problems with them and don't bother even putting them near a cd drive anymore.

Bruce has it the past said that all faulty cd's returned to them have worked perfectly...and he's obviously a man of his word so......

1st question would be are you using a newish CD drive or a really old one.

I had to finally upgrade my old CD drive when I couldn't install games CD (I've upgraded practically everything bar the case, CD and floppy).

This happens to me occasionally too - one the one occasion there was something on the disk I really wanted, I emailed PCWorld and they replaced it. Same thing happened when my disk was broken on arrival inthe mailbox.

Revenge of the mailman?

I had similar trouble some time ago. I bought a new CD ROM drive and all PC World CDs now run perfectly.
