I have Dawn of War game of the Year addition. So I have the original game, and the Winter Assault expansion pack. I have a rather new PC i think.
Its an ACER Travelmate
It has 512MB RAM
2.9 Ghz processor
Good video card etc, but none of that is the problem, it runs Dawn of War fine on full video seetings, audio etc, run brilliant on full settings, as do all other games I play.
Only problem is this.
My DVD drive is good too, it runs and burns all types of DVD's and CD's, never had a problem.
However I have just bought Dawn of War: Dark Crusade. It is straight from the box, place it in my drive, and nothing happens. It makes a few sounds like it is attempting to load, then does nothing. On occassion my computer freezes up pretty bad. I get no image come up in My Computer, nothing happens. It is highly frustrating.
The only other game this has ever happend with is Total War: Eras, in other words all the Total War discs did the same thing. Nothing loaded, or worked. Just plain nothing happens.
It is driving me mad, i have a great laptop, evertyhing runs fine, games are great, and whats more is i laready ahve Dawn of War and its WA expansion! So i know the game runs, have they changed the type of disc they use for this game? I'm just stumped. Is it a driver problem they're disc, firmware, dvd-ram issues, i just have no idea.
My disc drive is a
TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-L632B
Driver Provider: Microsoft
Driver Date 01/07/2001
Driver version: 5.1.2535.0
Digital Signing: Microsoft Windows Publisher
I ran Disc Detector or something like, it basically says my CD/DVDW drive can run and play and burn anything, so I am confused as to why it won't read this disc.
Please, any help?
