If you way you were able to instal the cd into the computer but yet you cannot play with the cd you can always extract the information of the cd into a sepertae file on your computer and instead of running your game from the cd you can run it from the file just make sure that your cd instalation also installed on that file as well so this plan can work another thing you can try that i have seen work before you can make a copy of the game to a regualar cd-r and see if the game works with the cd-r i seen that method work a couple of times see if that works out for you
