I've recently purchased a laptop with both Windows 98 and Windows 2000 on it. Both systems read one CD-ROM disk (..lion king activity center... don't judge) but not another (some gaming galaxy thing with 300 games). When I put in the CD it doesn't read, it's as if it's not even running at all. I don't hear the disk being spun or anything. I tried googling what could be wrong but I can't really find anything.
What do you think the problem could be..?
Only thing I can think of is the spyware that came with all Galaxy of Games discs could be interfering...
The server is gone so it doesn't do anything any more, but it's still there (and will get picked up by antiviruses)
Also, all those Galaxy of Games titles tend to be shareware anyways so at least you aren't losing out.
Speaking of, I should find a full copy of Speedy Eggbert somewhere... my favorite out of all of those lol
As for the Lion King disc, I assume it isn't running on the Windows 2000 OS, right?
Would make sense. 2000 and ME were pretty crap.
Best operating system you can have before XP on a computer is 98SE.
All that legacy support and none of the programming bottlenecks.
