:whistling: I got the long awaited Tomb Raider The Legend today, popped it into the Cd Drive, heard strange noises, clicking and then.......................nothing! Thought it must be a faulty disc, so just to make sure I went and tried it on my old PC, it recognised it straight away!

What do you suggest, I'm not a happy bunny thought I would be runnning and shooting all night.

Sounds like a dead optical drive. The clicking would be a dead giveaway. Time for a replacement.

Sounds like the drive is having trouble reading the CD.
Try changing the transfer mode of the drive to PIO only mode, if that doesn't work try updating the firmware.

:whistling: Errrrrrrrrrr, how do I change the transfer mode of the drive? Or update my firmaware? I also should add that the cd/dvd drive can read other discs, just doesn't like the Tomb Raider one.

Firmware updates can be downloaded from the manufacturers website.

Open Device Manager
Double-click IDE ATA//ATAPI Controllers to display the list of controllers and channels.
Right-click the icon for the channel to which your burner is connected and select Properties. Now click the Advanced Settings tab.
In the Current Transfer Mode drop-down box, select "PIO Only." and click ok.

:whistling: Updating the Firmware has solved the problem!!! I can now play Lara although I don't know if I'm that impressed with it as yet.

Glad you got it sorted!

Just to let you know there's a patch available for the game, it fixes some stability issues.
