Computer game install help, please

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I got a new computer game yesterday (Anacapri...the dream) and it won't install. I put it in my CD drive...and it just sits there. There are noises from the drive, but the autoinstall doesn't start up, and when I go to that drive in My Computer, it shows that nothing is there. I've cleaned out everything (temporary files, internet files, etc) and got rid of 3 other games that were still on the computer but it's still not working. Why? Could it just be a bad disk?

Note: I am basically computer challenged, so if you have any suggestions please put it in plain english!

is it a dvd game? in a dvd drive?
if its a cd try the cd in a different drive, or a different computer.
but yea, sounds like it could be DOA.

It's a CD (I think) and I'm using it in the CD-writer drive. I only have one, and this one always ran any other game. In fact, I got Space-Quest series a few weeks ago and it worked fine. I know my husband's computer probably won't run it because his is a piece of crap! I may try it on my MIL's computer though. I already threw the receipt away. If I take it back to the store and they try it on a computer there and it doesn't work, do you think they will take it back or give me store credit? It wasn't a lot of money, only about $20.00, but still.....

Check the system requirements, if your computer is too outdated it wont install, or if you dont have enough space for it to install. I had this issue with a game I had for windows 98, wont work on my XP now because XP wont recognize it.

In my experience if the drive is showing as empty in "My Computer" the disc is a DVD and the drive is not. Look for the little DVD logo somewhere on the disc or case.
