    If you put a regular DVD like a movie into the drive does it play on it's own? Can you show a screen shot.

  • it does...and a screenshot of what?

    is it right?

  • @Amy Lukima said: Have you tried the disc in a different computer?


    yes...i have two comps...both fail

  • So if you go to My Computer and then to your D drive you see the disc right? Then you click install and get this?

  • i opened the launcher txt file...and im asking if there is a coding flaw...the citicen brown and edna farm photo wont light up..i do see the disk in d drive...i click the autorun icon and THEN theres an install button

    and i have xp if that helps

    Short Answer:
    You need to launch the autorun from the DVD's autorun to view the extras though the viewer. You can't launch the autorun from the desktop shortcut for the extras.

    Launching the launcher from the desktop won't give you the extra viewers. I'll go into more details below the line, but the short answer is make sure the desktop shortcut version is closed, then open from the DVD.

    ----------------------
    Long Answer:
    The problem is a limitation of the Windows operating system.

    The OS doesn't give a way to inform the OS that there's a disc inserted or what disc(s) are on the drives. The only way to do that is to check each drive letter and check it's disc label, then check for files. Since drives can be one of twenty four letters, it would take a lot of time to load the autorun and poll each drive letter. Each polling would have to: check it's existence, if it contains a disc, if it's the right disc, then the right files are on the disc. It could take from 2 to infinity to get the application to load.

    So instead, we put in the "Insert the Disc" notice. While it's not very clear about the case where it's inserted and you're running from the desktop, it's better than everyone suffering over long or forever loading just to launch the Launcher.

    The other option would be to copy all the extras content onto the hard drive and run it from there. But we didn't want to have an install size of extra 2.87GB for content not directly game related.
