If you have CloneCD installed try to disable it's Hide CD-R media function and tray.

If it's SecuROM check related threads about SecuROM blacklists in copyprotections forum (e.g. HalfLife2) .

Having the same problem with the same game.

Read through the long half-life thread and still trying to piece it all together. Looks like many hours of trial-and-error may be involved. :(

This sort of thing really makes me angry. I pay them big bucks for a game, I expect to be able to play it, and I expect the program to not do nasty things to my system, and in particular not to install malware on my machine without permission and then leave it there even after being uninstalled. It made me so angry I packed the game up and tried to return it, but apparently short of actually siccing a lawyer on them (more money than it's worth) it seems I'm stuck with this pile of crap.

So can anyone tell me simply how to make the bloody thing run?

And, on a side note, any suggestions as to how most effectively to convey to the publisher of this thing my intense displeasure with what they've done? It looks to me like it falls under several 'anti-hacking' statutes and should land whoever authorised it in prison for a few years, although I wont be holding my breath waiting for justice to be done. But at the very least, I've paid for the thing and cant get my money back so I'd like to at least get to play it.

Hi evevrybody, i'm new here!

First of all, i want you to excuse me for my english, but i'm italian and i don't speak this language very well :p

Now i want to explain my problem: i have an image of the game Championship Manager 5, from Eidos, and i've mounted the image on the D-tool. The installation is ok, but when is finished and i click "play" the game gave me an error: "conflict with disc emulator software detected".
So I decided to make a copy 1:1 of the image. I've burned two cd's (one copy with Alcohol 120% and one with BlindWrite) but when i insert the cd in the drive, the game gave me another type of error: "Invalid or unknown Cd".

I would like to know what i must do for play with Championship Manager 5, if it's possible.

Thanks for the answers and a lot of regards
Joey
