Having problems with your Computer Games ?

When i insert the football manager 2009 disc my computer doesnt even acknowledge that it is there. It just brings up a message sayin "please insert disc" please help.

Answers :

Its not the problem in your disc.as you said its working in other computers.its not the problem in your dvd drive as you said other disc are working in your dvd drive.its not the problem of the lens as you said you cleaned it and checked.here you go wrong.i except that other dvd disc works on it,but each dvd lens has a particular lens capacity.that slowly --- slowly gets weaker and weaker day by day as per the usage ogf the drive.in your case the lens is not gone completely bad ,but it has gone bit weak.and the disc which you are reffering that is not getting read by your drive needs more power to read the disc.so when you insert it says.insert the disc.as because your dvd drive is not capable to read that disc as the lens is weak.you are not the only 1 facing this problem ,there are many of my customers facing this problem.as some of there disc does not works in the drive and other disc works in the same drive and after replacing the lens it starts working.but lens replacement is very much near to new.so its your choise to replace it or not.
\015\012thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

This message refers to :-

1. Either CD is corrupted. Try to run this on other PC , if that works this confirms that the CD is fine.

Then, sure shot, This is due to windows corruption.

2. Check, by inserting some other disc. It would show the same error for all the CD's. You need to reinstall the windows. One of the .windows files has been at fault. Might be corrupted or deleted.

Any further help, Buzz me.

Thanks for using Fixya.
