DVD ROM game problems

By sam_dampier ·
My DVD ROM (IDE DVD ROM 16X) will recgnise DVD's, music, pc cd rom's and anything else you can think of, except games which require a DVD-ROM to play them - it simply comes up with an error message asking to insert a disk. The computer wont search the disk, it simply wont recognise it - please can anyone help?

Do you have multiple optical drives?

If so, did you install it from another drive or a .iso or something similar?

Most games are very particular and will only look for the DVD from which it was originally installed.

I only have one other drive - a cd re-writer. The game has never been installed on the computer, so I dont think this can cause this problem

I have exactly the same problem as you Sam. I can play anything, and do anything, except run games which require the DVD-ROM to be inserted to start.
Any chance you could post your system specs? And I'll compare them to mine and see if there's something in common?
