I have two suggestions to try. First, go to the shortcut or .exe for the game, right click on it and go to properties. Click on the compatibility tab and check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and Windows XP should already be selected. If this doesn't work, also in compatibility there is "Run program as administrator". Only do this with programs you trust, but I don't see a reason not to trust this game. If this also does not work, if you are running 64 bit vista, it is likely the game will not run at all. This has to do with it being a 64 bit operating system and not a 32 bit operating system, not if it was vista or XP. I hope this gave you the answer you were looking for.

DVD's won't play in my TSST corp CDDVDW SH-224BB. Diablo played fine in it, but no DVD's.


Try this...
Go to device manager right click on and un-install the DVD drive. Then restart the computer and wait for the "Found New Hardware" balloon message to disappear. That reloads the drivers. Then put in a dvd and see if it works.
Also, you may have inadvertently turned off autoplay. If so, turn it back on. See here...

Windows Vista's AutoPlay options are a great improvement over Windows XP in terms of flexibility, but unfortunately there are so many options that it can be confusing, especially since there's no specific mention of USB Flash drives in the options. Open your Control Panel, and then click on "Play CDs or other media automatically" to open the AutoPlay dialog. Disable AutoPlay Globally. The quickest way to disable AutoPlay entirely is to just uncheck the box for "Use AutoPlay for all media and devices", which should usually work.

  1. In My Computer, right click on the drive you want to AutoPlay (it will not display if it is not plugged into your computer) and select AutoPlay.
  2. Choose the best option for you and press OK. Remember, there are several options available, including playing Media Files, copying pictures to your drive or if you have a program installed that can AutoPlay (autorun) such as PortableApps.com Menu from PortableApps.com. If you need to reset your options, just follow these instructions again!

And that's it!

I put game disk in drive and nothing happens


Autoplay might be disabled.

Try opening "My Computer", then right-click the drive containing your game. You should be presented with an option to autoplay or install.

You might have to "run as administrator" if using Vista or Windows 7.

Good Luck!

Get a little cd flashing by the pointer when putting a game on.the game will not start.what does the flashing cd mean?


The drive is attempting to initiate the Autorun of the CD. Some CDs have an autoplay feature, some don't, some the autoplay doesn't work. So open my computer, see if the drive actually reads the CD. If it does, look for an autoplay or setup.exe

MAXTOR 320 AUTOPLAY Problem


Another way to disable autoplay in XP (don't know if this works in other versions of Windows) is to click Start -> Run -> type "msconfig" -> click the Services tab -> and uncheck the selection called "Shell Hardware Detection". This will disable autoplay for not only all of your CD-ROM drives, but any other form of removable media (ie memory cards from your digital camera).
