Well, I just downloaded Dogz5 to go with my Catz5. i one day tried to open my game it said, "Please insert correct disk, press OK and restart the application." So I opened the disk drive, my game was in there. I tried to uninstall my game, but when ever I try, I have to wait a long time, then the screen turns white. I click Ctrl Alt Delete and it says that my Petz5 setup is not responding, so I have to exit the program. I tried a thousand times and I still have no solution. Help would be appreciated!

Re: Petz5 won't play or uninstall Plz help!!
First check if the cd is dirty, scratched or damaged. If this is the case then you can try polishing the scratches out with a soft cloth and liquid metal polish (only polish the side away from the foil/label and try to only polish the scratched area) don't worry about removing scratches completely - start with the worst, then try the disk again - it might just work.
If this doesn't help then try the disk in another machine or another disk drive. if it now seems to work then although your drive may seem to work on other things it is probably getting tired.
I am assuming that you purchased the game and have a legal copy. If not then that is likely to be the problem as the software protection will not allow you to play the game without the correct CD. If you downloaded the file for the Dogz part, try burning it to CD as an image file (Check your burning software for details) and try running the game with that in the drive.
If that doesn't work, then you are able to disable the CD protection file yourself if you have purchased the game so you don't have to have a CD in each time you want to play.
and search for dogz or petz and download the appropriate crack for your version.
find the install directory where the game is installed(usually c:\program files\ubisoft\petz) and then copy the crack into this directory, and say yes when it asks if you wish to replace the slightly larger file - now the game should work.
Please ask for more details if you are unsure how to proceed with this and I am happy to oblige.

I did some research as well. Apparently the game counts days not only using the time/date on your computer, but also only when you close down and restart the program. For example, if you leave the game on for two days, the game thinks it is that same day. I would try to close the game down completely and then reopen it. Hopefully that will put the kittens in your nursery.
thats the problem of the games download... please download to www.kickasstorents.com for the games.. then after that you burn it in your computer now installed in your pc then boom no more please insert disk
When you reinstall the game do you click 'yes' to 'do you want to save your petz'?
You need to click 'no for it for work. You will lose all your petz.. but its the only way (that i know of) to get ur game working again.
Also, when you go to play the game, go to My Computor and click on Petz5 to play, instead of playing it from the shortcut or whatever. That means you need to have the disk permentently in.
And, when you fastforward (time glitch) only forward one day at a time (opening up petz after you forward, closing, and going forward another day).
Hope it works :)
Im not sure what you could do about the first half of your problem, but i think i know a way that might fix the second bit.
Uninstall, and click no, i dont want to save my petz, and then continue w/ the uninstalling (and hope it works :p)
when thats finished, install again, and play the game from My Computor, Petz, and play.
hope it workz
This has happened to me too. Okay what you need to do is go into Program Files > Ubi Soft > Petz 5 > Adopted Petz. There is probably a file in there with the name of a Petz that hasn't left it's mother yet. Delete that file - don't worry, you will not lose the baby - and try reloading the game again. It works for me every time.
Dogz and Catz 5 both seem to have alot of problems! Disk space means you dont have enough room to copy it onto your computer, I would suggest deleting some downloaded things (nothing important though, you dont want to mess up your computer, lol)
Ok, I got an answer from Daniel Wright, who has SP 2 and this is what he says:
"The solution is easy, go to your Petz 5 installation folder and rename setupapi.dll to something like setupapi.bak - Petz 5 will now load without any problems.
The problem only effects Petz 5 as Petz 4 doesn't include that file, and providing the game is patched it continues to run just fine on XP SP2."
