I was wondering if anyone can help me. .

I have a Acer Aspire 5315 laptop and I have installed a game successfully on it, yet when I run the game the following error message appears

You are trying to start a copy-protected application which requires the original disc to be in the CD/DVD-ROM drive. Please check to make sure your disc is an original

The disc is original. I can access other things of the game fine (Data Editor etc) but just unable to actually play the game. .

I am new to the world of Vista and don't know where to start. .

Please help !!

Thanks in advance

Leigh

do you have any drive emulation software (dameon tools or power iso or alcohol 120% etc) installed? if so the game when it runs will sometimes refuse to load if any software of this nature is installed. try uninstalling the software then uninstalling your game then reboot reinstall your game and all should be fine
