Prince of Persia: Sands of Time install probs
I've been trying to install Prince of Persia on my friends machine, and everything seems to be going well up until we insert the second disk during installation, and a prompt comes up (after beginning the process of installing again) saying:

The wrong volume is in the drive. Please insert POP_install into Drive E.


I know it isn't the wrong disk, but it keeps saying that it is. What could be the problem, and how can I fix it? Thanks.

So, one possible cause is that the game installer is looking for the disc in a specific place (in one certain drive). If you put disc 2 in the wrong drive, you will get this error message, even though the disc is actually in your machine.

OK, so you put in disc 2, and then the error message pops up. Take disc 2 out and put it in the other drive, even if it means taking out disc 1. Then click OK. If the same thing comes up again, switch it back to the first drive, and click OK again.

Hopefully that will solve the issue?
