    Yes the disc is original and not damaged, it works in other computers, I have already tried the following: Creating new user account and trying to run through that.

    Updating drivers etc.

    Checking I have nothing that would prevent the relevant systems to operate properly such as alcohol 120%, UltraIso etc etc.

    I have cleaned the disc and the lens.

    I have no idea what is preventing this from working, it should instal automatically but my laptop wont even recognise it as being there in the 1st place.

  • fpusarossn May 11, 2009

    Yes i have tried that, everything else works apart from this game.

  • fpusarossn May 11, 2009

    No thats not the problem because every other disc works fine in the computer and the disc in question works fine in other computers. Any other solutions or ideas?

    When i insert the football manager 2009 disc my computer doesnt even acknowledge that it is there. It just brings up a message saying "please insert disc". Please note. I have already checked the lens (it is clean) and the disc is not at fault it works in other computers. Can anyone help?

  • fpusarossn May 11, 2009

    Its not the disc drive at fault because everything else i play on it works fine and its not the disc because the disc works fine on other computers so where is the problem?

  • fpusarossn May 11, 2009

    This isnt the problem because as i said previously. Everything works fine. DVD's CD-ROM etc etc etc all work fine apart from this one CD which works fine in other computers. It is a common error with this game because I know of other people who had the same problem but Iam not sure how they rectified it. Sega are the manufacturers of this game if that helps?

  • fpusarossn May 11, 2009

    I dont have a removable disk drive or usb plug in so this isnt really appropriate to the problem however i did try and my computer would not allow me to change the title of my disk drive.

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.

thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

Hi,

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.

    Try the above by changing the name of the drive if that would solve the issue.

Hi fpusarossn! may i ask if your football manager 2009 is an original copy? because it is a common problem if the disc is not original. the computer does not recognize it. did you try inserting other disc? if the other disc is recognized, then the problem is in your football manager. but if the other cd does not play also, try cleaning the lens..hope it helps..good luck!!

Pls check the cd by inserting to another computer...If it works then your cd drive lens needs to be cleaned by a lens cleaner...

My dell inspiron 560 wont recognize any disc it acts like nothings in it how do i fix it?


Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

Okay, please repeat the problem and symptoms, that was a bit out of sorts.
This is what I got:
You were trying to play Football Manager 2009, but when you loaded up the game, you got error code "invalid token."
if so;
You need to clear your cache files. Do this without the game running.

How to delete your Cache files


First of all you need to turn on hidden files and folders. Go to My Computer and at the top select 'Tools' the 'Folder Options'. The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

Windows XP:
1. Open “My Computer”
2. Navigate to : “Documents and Settings\<Username>\Application Data\
3. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder.
4. Go into the “Football Manager 09” Folder.
5. Delete the folder called "Cache"

Wndows Vista:
1. Click “Start”
2. Click your username on the start Menu
3. Click on “AppData” and then “Roaming”
4. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder
4. Go into the “Football Manager 09” Folder.
5. Delete the folder called "Cache"

Mac OSX
1. Open Finder.
2. Select <User>
3. Navigate to Library\Caches\Sports Interactive
4. Go into the “Football Manager 09” Folder.
5. Delete the "Cache" Folder.
5. In the 'Library' Folder look for the 'preferences' folder.
6. Go into the “Football Manager 09” Folder.
7. Delete the "Cache" Folder


Do NOT Delete the folder marked "Football Manager 2009 Certificate".

License key


FM09 - Football Manager (FM 2009) error product key already active. The solution is you need to delete the certificates and re-activate the game.
1) On receiving the error, please uninstall the game
2) Please navigate to the following directory:

XP users: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009 Certificate
Vista users: C:\Program Data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009 Certificate

3) Please ensure that it is the \certificate directory you are located in
4) Delete all content
5) Reboot the machine
6) Re-run the installation program and retry activation - ensuring you have 'verified' your key using the following website: http://keylookup.fm2009.softanchorinsight.com/
7) You should now be activated

If this doesn't work tell me and I will see what I can do.
