Cd is not working in my cd-rom drive, but is on another one
Posted on 2000-04-01
Specifically, my 'Starcraft' cd is not working in my main computer, but is on another computer's cd-rom of mine.
When I pop the cd in, in the main cd-rom drive, it whirs around (quite noisily) and then refuses to load. It works without any problems whatsoever on my second computer.
The main computer's cd-rom drive is a Kenwood Truespeed 42x
The second computer's cd-rom drive is a Toshiba 8x.
I have never had this problem before, but when I loaned the cd to a friend and he gave it back, I started having this problem. My friends tell me the cd works on his as well.
Main computer is:
Motherboard is an Asus P1598 model
450 k6-2 mhz processor
The other computer's motherboard, I'm not too sure about, It is rather old, from around '96 or '97, and it something like an Intel 740 motherboard. The Processor is a 200 mhz pentium, and 64 ram
Don't tell me my cd-rom is broken, I've tried numerous other cd-roms, and they work just fine. I want to know why the Starcraft CD doesn't work on one computer and does on almost every other computer. I have tried clearing out every reference to the game in the registry, as well as un-installing again.
