older ones rather than new games? If so, it could a couple of things.....either the cdrom device is dirty and the laser inside can't read the cd and needs to be cleaned, or the disks are so old that the color of the disk itself can't be read by the laser of a newer cdrom device.
Do you have this same problem with newer disks?
Ok.. I know nothing about this computer except it's a gateway ME and that's all so sorry if nobody can help me. But every time I try to install a game it doesn't start up so I do the "start" "run" "d:\setup.exe" and it says I have to insert a disc but it's already in there! So I don't know what to do. And if you reply to this, please make it simple cuz I don't know computer terms very well. Thanks
