Question Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Error
Hi everyone,

I recently purchased Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour. Once I had it installed, I went to play it, but an error message came up saying:

"Please insert the first game CD"

I already had the first CD in! What can I do to fix that problem? and what is the problem?

I am running Windows XP Home.

Thanks

What kind of CD Drive is it?

Also did you check this thread? Usually Method 14 in the other link in the link above solves the problem.

I am using an LG Super Multi Drive. Also, about the method 14, I've already done all that.

Well, I've seen cases where a restart of the machine would solve the problem.

Have you gone through all the methods?

Try the other methods. It's a common problem that there's no one fix that will do it. I don't know if this is on there, but uninstalling and reinstalling may also work. Just make sure you restart the machine after you install it.

OK, I don't know if SP2 is teh cause here. I have SP1 and I'm running fine.

So if you put in Disc 1 in for ZH and the autorun box comes up, what's the first option?

I am not accusing you of anything, but I own a lot of EA games, and I have actually 'accessed' some EA games.. (Please dont come for me cops!)

I have never had the CD error except for EVERY SINGLE GAME that I 'accessed.'

The best solution for you is go find a cr*ck.

BTW, I have that game, very fun! We should play sometime.
