Thank, you for the welcome, and I'm happy to be member of the forum. I have read it for years but never had any real reason to join until this frustrating issue.
I had the games in mothballs until recently, but dug them out to take them for a spin on my new-ish HP.
It might be something to do with my ROM drive on my laptop.
It's a DVD-ROM, but the play feature only seems to engage for movie disks. Runs them like a LEDFS with no glitches.
But it's also a CD burner, so I can only see the option to erase the disk, or copy the files as if I was going to pirate it.
Can anyone tell me how to disable the writer so just the autoplay on my DVD-ROM works? I never burn anything anyway, and it seems like game makers wouldn't make disks and HP wouldn't make a drive this screwy if there wasn't a way to get it to play game disks.
But I have asked around and scanned the net. Nothing about what I need, only tips on disabling the autoplay I want to activate.
