So I bought the Counter Strike Anthology today. I had bought it twice before and it owuld not find the CD so took it back to the shop and got another disc and found that one not to work so I got a refund assuming it was a bad batch of CD's.

Today I bought the game again and it still wont be found on my computer si can someone please identify me with the problem. AutoPlay is deffinately enabled, ive installed Steam but it doesnt find anything in the Cd Drive.


Please Help!!!

Its just this CD. I bought this from a different shop so I know its not like the shop has a bad batch. Music CD's work fine too. Is there a driver or anything I may need ot install for it to find the CD?

Have you tried a different CD drive? or have you tried it on another computer?

Ive tried it in another drive. I'll try it in another computer later when my friends get back from school. Any other ideas why? I may need to install something else to get it to recognize?

A few really really long shots would be to update chipset drivers, change the transfer mode of the drive to PIO only and maybe a firmware update on the drive.
