i've owned gta vice city for over a year now and it has always run fine. Recently i got my own computer and tried to install vice city on that. The game installs all the data as far as i am aware but when i click on the icon to play the game the game wont load?? The mouse icon turns to the cd image and begins to spin and it just carrys on doing that and if you leave it it carrys on doing that for about 20mins before eventually giving up.

i tryed unistalling the game and io brought a new copy of the game and tried to install that but it stil wil not play?? i have no idea what to do :blink: all my requirments are above the requirements for the game ?

please help?? :whistling:

thanx in advance

Your CD/DVD drive might be having problems reading the disk. This can happen because of the copyright protection.
Try using a different CD/DVD drive or try changing the transfer mode of the drive to PIO only mode (transfer mode can be changed in device manager).
