This is really weird!
I cleared out all my old .mdf and .mds files to free up some hard drive space, now my Alcohol backed up copy of IGI2 (SD2.8) will not start. Keep getting the message please insert Disk 1, and even the original won't work either. (Actually, I don't know if this is directly related or not. It's been 3 or 4 months since I last played IGI2, but this is the only significant change I can think of in the sytem - (Win98SE)).
I re-installed, as I thought there may be some problem with the update to SD2.9.040 to bring it back to SD 2.8, but still no go.
There are no 'Hide ATIP' apps running; the only CD writing apps installed are Alcohol (latest), CloneCD 184.108.40.206, BlindwriteSuite 4.5.2, and CDRWin 3.9A.
I made a new .mdf/.mds and tried to play from the Virtual drive in Alcohol, but still won't work.
Other than TIME I can't see what's changed that could stop the game working? I used to be able to play from the DVD Rom drive, or the Lite-On writer with ATIP hidden, or the virtual drive no problem.
Does anyone have any ideas what could be stopping the game from playing?
