Here are a couple of ideas- I have played many of the Nancy Drew games, so hopefully something here will help you. First thing I would try is to not put the disc in to play. I think that you do not need the disc to actually be in the computer on this game. Some of the games will load the game twice if you have the disc in and then you can't play it at all. Another words that computer tries to load the disc and the game already installed, and it doesn't work well. So you might want to try that first. Also there is the uninstall and reinstall to try next. Did you check that you disc drive is compatible? If you are playing on an older computer, check that you have a dvd drive-newer computers do. Also do you have enough ram and a fast enough processor? If you look on the package, it will tell you the game requirements, another words what type of set up you need in order to run the game. I would guess that you do have the right requirements, and one of the first two suggestions will fix it. Good luck!
If still the CD Drive cannot read the Disc then you should another CD Drive if this game is still working or read. CD Games Disc cannot be easily damage or broke even you keep it in a long years. Try another CD/DVD Drive to run the game or Use another Computer to see it is still work. Good luck!
Does your cd drive show up in my computer?
for a game disc, you dont need any codecs at all to run it. those are for recognizing certain formats of video and audio usually found in downloaded musics and movies.
let me know.
sounds like the reader lens has burnt out on it .is your xbox stood upright ? seem to hear the lenses burn out alot faster if the consol is upright as opposed to being led down, you can buy the parts from ebay or other computer shops , or send it back to microsoft to repair , you are able to lay downloaded games as they play off of the hard drive memory , where as the disc games obviously read off of the disc when the laser gets tired they work intermitantly then eventually stop all together.
hope this is of help to you
This is a big problem with a lot of games and their copyguard schemes. The game doesn't like the CD drive that you are using, usually. Their is also a host of other factors that can cause this. You can contact the game manufacture but they usually don't succeed in a fix. I have had a game do this on almost identical systems. Works on one but not the other.
