can anyone help, I can load the game onto the computer no probs. Then when you put the cd 1 in to play the autoplay comes up so I click play single player and it comes up with "please insert correct cd and restart application"

I have found that I can get around this by useing an external drive on all but one game. This game however plays on the internal drive.

Deos anyone know whats causing this

I have checked cables and jumper...which is set to cable selet.

What game(s) is this and what are the specs of your computer and the internal drive that you're using?

I get this too on one of my DVD RW's..and it showed up as a "redundant cyclic..something or other" problem.

All I needed that time was to clean the lens of the laser. I used one of those little cd cleaner kits with the little (soft) brush on it and let it run a few revolutions...and it all went back to running again.

Just an anecdotal idea...but it worked for me.

Are your disk(s) original or copies?
