I purchased a copy of sam and max yesterday. While the bonus cd works fine, the game cd doesn't seem to exist (The game never starts, if i try to manually open it from my computer nothing shows up--it's as if the cd is blank). Once, a few years ago, I had a problem similar to this one. The difference is that then I would eventually recieve an error message saying that the cpu couldn't read the disc or something similar to that. With this one, however, it never even acknowledges that there is a disc. I figured that it was a defective cd so I went and exchanged it. Same problem. However, I tested it on a friend's computer and it worked. What could be going on?
I think, when it happened before, it was due to the copy protection software.
Anyway, I really want to play the game, but I can't. It's making me nuts.
My system specs are:
DVD- ATAPI DVD DD 2x16x16
Windows XP Professional
Service Pack 2
Brand: Shuttle G5 WCG 8300G
Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.83 GHz
3.42 GHz, 1 GB of Ram
Soundblaster Audigy II
I scan for spyware and viruses on a daily basis, so I'm pretty sure everything is clean on that front.
I would sure appreciate any help that would allow me to play.
