What type of cdrom are you using? Do you have another avaliable cdrom on your computer and try it in? If you're using a cd-rw, there are known problems with them. Try a different drive such as a dvd drive.

The play disk is disk 3 BTW. Also, your user name has Geno in it. My name is Geno...Is it your last name or first? It is my last, my user name gnogtr means "Geno Guitar" because I go by Geno and I play guitar.

My system:

AMD XP 2400+ @ 2.13 Ghz
1 gig of Corsair DDR PC2700 RAM @333Mhz
Radeon 9800 Pro video w/TV out core @434, mem @720
Windows XP SP 1
Microsoft Directx 9.0a
Antec TruePower TrueBlue True480 PSU
16x Antec DVD drive
24x10x40 Plexwriter CD-RW
1 Westerndigital 40 gig harddrive, master
1 Westerndigital 100 gig hdd, slave
XFX KT400 ALH Via mainboard, 4-in-1 4.48

Try to load it off your dvd drive. I know there is nothing wrong with your CDRW, but this game just somehow doesn't like them. If it still keeps up, there may be something wrong with the cd. 2800+, I'm upgrading to one of those next week, do you like it? Do you know how many PCmark2002's it gets? I'd really like to compare it to mine. I get 61xx on the CPU part and 43xx on the memory part. I was just wondering...

Dear BDS_Geno try the patch file in the 3rd cd and please notice where you have installed the game (drive c or d or ...) to unzip the files in the right folder.
