Right click on the CD drive and make sure that auto-play has not been disabled. Make sure the program is compatible with the PC. You may even try to if you have more than one computer on your network see if one of the other computers read it and if so share that drive and you will be able to use that drive on that computer to install it to the other computer

How to install company of hero to my pc

To install this game follow these steps.
1. Put the CD/DVD in your computer (If you have a DVD version of the game and no DVD drive it won't work.) 2. The disk should be read and you can click on the autoplay/install option. If this doesn't happen go to my computer and double click the cd drive with the game icon on it. 3. Click install and follow the on screen instructions. You will need a CD key which is provided in the game case and it is usually located on the back of the instruction manual.
Hope this helps. Robert

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!

Microsoft Xbox 360 Console wont load games


Try to install the disk on a hard drive or mem stick, if that will not work, try the mem stick in another 360 install in then plug it back in your brothers, it will only need the disk to verify so wont have to read it all the time. The best mem sticks for this I have found to be sandisk.

You can also try to unplug the cord and then put it back in. try to put xbox 360 in vertical position and then put the game in. if it work on vertical position, then you can put it back to horizontal position.

Hope it works.

Console work but disk wont spin for slim ps2

The most common reason for the games not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your game including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your game going again!

Take care.

Autoplay is not active on your computer, so you have to go to My Computer, right click on the CD drive icon and click Autoplay. The game CD should start automatically then.

Can you download x-box 360 games onto the hard drive from the game disk, then play the game from the hard drive without using the disk.

No, you will still need the disc. The only point of downloading a game to your hard drive is to make the game load faster because the Xbox wont have to try as hard to read it. It isn't very useful for multiplayer games like Halo or Gears of War.

I have trouble loading CDs. There is a place to

Make sure you are placing the CDs in the drive with the label side up. If the computer can read DVDs, it can certainly read CDs as well. Once the cd is inserted, wait and the autoplay should start the installation program for the software.

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
