    Hello kennybouy

    Welcome to PressF1

    Do you have a DVD player in your computer?, to what your describing it sounds like you don’t have one in your computer that why you cant run the PC World DVD.

    Does a CD work? Do any other DVDs work?

    Hi, Looks like its only a cd player, not a dvd! How come the old PLUS cd's play and new ones don't (have they changed to DVD?) Whats the difference? thanks

    Yes, the cd dose work as it runs the old cd's when I was subscribed 3-4 yrs ago. I did put in the March 2002 and it started instantly in IE. ?

    NZ PC World sometimes include a DVD disk instead of a standard CD disk with the magazine. The DVD's will only work if you have a DVD drive installed.

    Hardware. You will need to buy a DVD optical drive if you wish to use DVD's. They are not expensive so you may wish to consider getting a DVD writer which can also be used for backing up your personal files as they can hold about 4.7 Gigs of data compared to 700 MB with a CD.

    I can't see anywhere in the magazine where it states you can have a CD instead, and some of the individual game file sizes are well over what you could fit on a single CD. They only put out the DVD's instead of CD's a couple of times a year.
