    Do you know that the game is compatible with Windows 7? Do you know that the 2nd disk is not damaged?

    I'd strongly suspect an issue with the games, e.g. they might claim Win7 compatibility but still have issues. I don't play games but have no problem loading multi-disk programs on my Win7 PC so it's not, strictly speaking, a problem Win7 has with multi-disk programs. It might be a problem Win7 has with running programs from CD but if so then I would say the games aren't fully compatible with Win7. I do remember one program that was 'compatible' except for the install program. With the permission of the owner (which was a volunteer organization anyway so they readily gave permission for me to volunteer my expertise) I was able to patch that so it would install properly, and sure enough-the program itself, once installed, ran fine.

    i agree some games like mafia dated 2003 by illusion software prob is non compatible three disc set others like call of duty group are all pre 2005 and dont load , i just tried dungeon siege two a five disc set released 2005 by microsoft and it loaded now im really getting confused if i recall call of duty series ended with airborne 2009 release and none load seems like the disc drive being brand new two month old is not reading or perhaps windows 7 require patches to work not sure
