Getting really mad

I just recently bought  a game. it wouldn't work so i took one of my other games and tried it again, still it wouldn't work. i'm getting really mad. i think it has something to do with my D:\ drive. but when i tried to start it manually it said that nothing was in the folder. and the game works fine on vista and i have all the system requirments. is it that my hard drive isn't reading the disk? how do i fix it?

My mad catz game cube 1x memory card wont work for wii and its telling me to format it. so i formatted it but when i went to play a game cube game on the wii it said the card was not formatted and the card...

I would try sticking it into a gamecube and formatting it in there then try using it again in the wii, make sure its in the slot thats on the same side of the system as the disc drive. If it still doesn't work the memory card may be corrupted or the battery is dead-some have one some don't.
Good luck and happy gaming!

We have Nintendo DSi and my daughters Dsi has stopped playing certain games. Her aunt installed some updates and since then this problem has occurred. I tried to reset and reformat but nothing worked, some...

Chances are the updates included a patch to the firmware that blocks the ability to play counterfeit games. The reason a reset and reformat probably didn't work is because they DID do an update to the firmware which wouldn't be affected by any kind of format or reset. If it's true that some games came from the internet and have a possibility of being fake..that is more than likely the cause of the issue. The fact that it plays some games fine and not others really solidifies my conclusion.

Hope this helps.

I'm playing FFVII on a PS2, and I'll save my game to the memory card, but when I go to load it, there is no data... I tried saving on 2 blocks, but when I did that, the first save had a bunch of glitches...

a memory card is a memory card at the end of the day and mad catz is virtually just as good as the offical sony stuff. it is the memory card being faulty as it is not actually saving or showing up. try buying a new memory card

New game does not play-Msg says to clean disc but it is clean.

If the warranty is still good abandon trying to deal with bad repairs and demand a exchange, have them replace it.

Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia not working

a large number of older games do not work on vista, they are incompatible, you can either download the patch from the games site, which i see youve tried and it did not work, in this case, try to run the program in windows xp SP2 mode. to do this, fidn the application or executive file, it will have .exe at the end of the filename or will say application, then right click it, properties, compatibility, then check the box to run in compatibility mode for:, then choose for Windows XP (Service Pack 2), use those settings then try it again, if it still doesnt work then you simple can not use that game on vista. your last option you can try has a small risk of virus, only because it is user created, but seacrh the internet for a patch that allows it to work on vista. some people make their own patches to allow the program to work on vista.
