By georgie8 ·
Have a game that is to be played in DOS. Game plays off a CD. When I go to DOS and try to install DOS cannot recognize my CD ROM. CD ROM is new and operating OK. Having no hardware problems.

Is there a command?

You didn't mention what the name of the game is but I'll assume it's a recent game like Quake for example. Some games run in DOS but need to be installed in Windows. Quake is one of those type games that, depending on your system configuration, can run invarious environments including Windows, Open GL, DOS etc. Try loading the CD in auto start(Windows) and follow the install prompts. If that does work "Explore" the CD for the "setup.exe" and run it. Most game manufactures don't require you to know how tonstall games from DOS, it too rustrating for most people and takes away from an enjoyable game experience. If that doesn't work, ask for a refund. If they wont refund your money... donate it to TR for the new flying disk upgrade. Good-Luck!
