chef, what do you mean it's my samsung writer? i read the thread you directed me too but not sure how to interpret it?? I don't want to copy the game disc, just play it. Sorry if i'm missing something here but am very new to this sort of thing.
I've read about safedisc and secuRom, installed the safedisc from ea games as advised on there website but the disc still doesn't work.
I managed to get another dvdRom (not ea games) and it is not being recognised either, when i click on d: drive it still says please insert disc even with a game other than sims2. All other computers i have tried it in recognise the discs imediately.
Maybe i just need a new cd/dvd rom drive, but it just seems pointless when my current one plays all other discs??
