Nvidia GeForce4 MX 4000 with 128MB DDR RAM
Win XP SP2 with all the latest updates (set to automatic)
I installed the DVD edition on this particular computer and when I go to start it up via the shortcut, executable or inserting the dvd, I get the following message:
Please insert the correct DVD-ROM, select OK and restart application
I get the same message when installing the university & nightlife expansion packs as well.
This is an original DVD with an original serial number. A few minor scratches on it, but nothing to prevent it from installing and playing since I did have it installed and working when it had an AMD 2000+ with 256MB RAM and Win XP with SP1. I don't think the service pack makes a difference because I was succesful installing it on a computer with SP2 installed.
At this point, I downloaded the latest patch and installed it. Downloaded the latest version of DirectX (9.0c) and installed it, but to no avail. I even went as far to install it on another computer (AMD64 3500+ / 2GB RAM / ATI All In Wonder 9800 Pro with 128 MB DDR RAM / Win XP SP2 with all the latest updates (set to automatic). It was successful without doing all the legwork I did for this particular computer. Any ideas?
