Thread: (please insert the correct cd-rom) after recent format of computer

  1. #1

    Default (please insert the correct cd-rom) after recent format of computer

    daemon tools use to work fantastically!!!!!!!
    i NEVER had a problem mounting and installing things
    but now, i've recently formatted my computer, i cannot run a darned thing...
    i'm basically trying to get my sims2 back on here..but nothing is working
    i ALWAYS get (please insert the correct cd-rom) now..
    like it's not reading it right

    i run windows xp
    never had a prob till after the format
    AND all these iso.'s have previously worked FINE with daemon tools..
    also having probs with alcohol 120%, same thing, so this isn't necessarily a daemon tools prob but probably a computer prob?

    ANY help would be great, thx

    Sims 2 uses SafeDisc as protection and ISO doesn't contain copy protection related data - use MDF/MDS instead.

    IIRC Sims 2 -like many Safedisc 2/3/4 protected CD titles- should also run fine as an ISO.

    No - ISO doesn't contain the read errors from SafeDisc.

    Many SD CD titles only check for the weak ones -> ISO works

    Yesterday i checked an ISO image at my niece's PC; ISO is enough for Sims 2 - just like jennajen26 reported.

    @jennajen26
    Do you know whether you have same chipset- and IDE/SATA-drivers as before the format ?
    Do you now also have other emulation software which wasn't installed before the format ?
