Re: jumper settings.

You have to be careful here with these switches and settings. If you have an IDE motherboard and cabling and drives, the boot drive should be MASTER on IDE0, plugged into the end of the cable, with (probably) the CD drive plugged into the middle connector of the same cable and set to SLAVE. The other two hard drives connect one as MASTER and the other as SLAVE on IDE1, with MASTER on the end of the cable. The jumper settings for all four devices will be different, so look carefully on the device to make sure you set the jumpers correctly.

Do all this with the machine unplugged of course. :>)

Good luck...

to check the registry
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
If your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it

hope this helps you

How to run REader Rabbit without CD-Rom? I can copy the disk contents to the HDD... but then all it does is error.. is there any way to use my software on my ePC when travelling without taking the CD's...

I have a (partial & ugly) solution here.

First, copy the entire cd contents into a folder on the computer. e.g. "C:\Program Files\The Learning Company\Reader Rabbit Reading 6-8 full cd copy" Then run the installer from \INSTALL\SETUP32.EXE

DO NOT delete the files which you copied off the cd.

What this does is it installs the program as if it installed off the cd, and creates initialization files which look to check that a certain file exists **in the location that you installed from** - You have fooled the launcher into thinking that the cd is in place.

However I am still not completely satisfied, because every time you launch the program, Windows 7 requires administrator privileges (so my kids have to come and ask me for my password every time).

I installed Petz 5 on my computer and when it's done loading, it says "The sound will not intalize." I went into the game, anhd the sound didn't work at all! Plz help!

First, please make sure that you have the latest firmware and drivers available for your CD/DVD-ROM drive. This can be done by visiting the CD/DVD-ROM manufacturers website.

Then, clear out your C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory (this is a storage area where files are stored before they are installed). Delete everything in this file, and your problem may be solved completely.

If this does not work, you may also need to clear out your Internet cache (temporary Internet files):

(Internet Explorer)
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Click on Tools -> Internet Options.
3a. In IE6 - Click on the 'Delete Files...' button on the Genral Tab
3b. In IE7 - Click on the 'Delete' button under the Browsing History section of the General Tab.

(Mozilla Firefox)
1. Open Firefox.
2. Click on Tools -> Options
3. Click on the Advanced tab -> Network Tab.
4. Click on the 'Clear Now' button under the Cache section.

- Empty your recycle bin

- Run Scandisk
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Scandisk
3. Select your hard drive. If you have more than one, you should scan each drive individually.
4. Click Standard
5. Check Automatically fix errors.
6. Click Start

- Run Defrag
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Disk Defragmenter
3. Select the hard drive you wish to defrag and click ok.

- Before attempting to install the game, make sure that you have no programs running in the background or system tray.

(Windows XP / Vista)
Go to the Start menu, (and choose Run if using XP). Delete anything on the Open line that you'll find there, and type in the work MSCONFIG. Click on OK, and that will bring up a program called the System Configuration Utility.

Look down the list of startup items (not the tab labeled Startup), and choose Selective Startup (if it is not already selected). If you don't see this, make sure you've clicked on General, near the top of the window. Once you've chosen Selective Startup, uncheck 'Load Startup Items', and leave 'Process System.INI file' and 'Process Win.INI file' checked. Once you're done here, click OK, and let it reboot your computer.

Your Windows environment may look different and you may get an error relating to your sound device not working (ignore this for now). Try running the game again. If the game loads and seems to be working, the problem is most likely related to one or more programs you have scheduled to load with Windows. You can then revert the settings back the way they were, and in a trial and error fashion, disable some programs using the startup tab (in the msconfig utility) to try to find the culprit.

(Windows 98/ME)
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the close program window. End all open tasks EXCEPT Explorer and systray.

- If you still have problems installing, you may not have the necessary hard disk space to install the game. You will need to clean out unnecessary files on your hard drive or otherwise allocate more space if you wish to install and play.

- Try a safemode install.
1. Copy the contents of the disc to a new folder on your desktop.
2. Restart Windows in Safe Mode.
3. Run setup.exe from the setup folder in the new folder you created on your desktop.
4. Restart the computer in normal mode and try the game.

- If all else fails, your game disk may be scratched or damaged.
1. Inspect the underside of the CD closely.
2. If their are any smudge marks, dirt, or scratches, clean the disk.

NOTE: When cleaning CDs, wipe from the center of the disc to the edge using a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Do not use a circular motion. Also, do not use paper cloth which can scratch the plastic and leave streaks.

3. Insert the CD and try installing again.
NOTE: Many common install problems are caused by scratched or damaged disks. If you think your game disk is damaged and needs to be replaced, please contact a Support Representative (Ask a Question tab above) to obtain replacement information as well as an RMA number.

I put the cd rom into the drive and nothing happens. I go to click on the icon under my computer and it causes the window not to respond.

Confirm that the CD drive is not a CD-ROM dive and the CD you are trying to open is is not a DVD. CD-ROM drive wil not open a DVD ROM and in some cases will cause the system to stop responding if youtry to run it.

Does it work with Windows XP ? ( Passport to 31 Languages )

  • 486/66 MHz or faster processor
  • Microsoft Windows 95 or 98
  • 16 MB RAM
  • 15 MB hard disk space
  • 2x or faster CD-ROM drive
  • SVGA video (640 x 480 with 256 colors)
  • Windows compatible sound device
according to the manufacturer no, however windows xp has a compatibility wizard that you could try. Might have to install in compatibility mode and run the program in compatibility mode as well. I had to do this with C&C red alert back in the day...
