    I originally posted in the hardware forum last week when my CD-RW wouldn't autorun and we went through everything. Well I decided to upgrade to windows xp which now that I got all the xp drivers it's running great except for the CD-RW problem which when I put in a game in it comes up and says to put the disk in the drive but the disk is already in the CD-RW. I think I know whats causing the problem but I don't know how to fix it. The game causing the problem is SIMCopter. I tried to uninstall the game but it gives me this error message: The Log File 'C:\Program Files\Maxis\SimCopter\DeIsL1.isu' is not valid or the data has been corupted. Uninstall will not continue. .....If I try to reload the game it gives me this error: ERROR SIGNITURE APP NAME: Autorun.exe APP ver: Mod Name: autorun.exe Mod Ver: offset: 00008a10. How can I get rid of this game without taking out some shared files.

    To get rid of the game you can uninstall from the cd... because that uninstall file won't be corrupted. Also, you can use add/remove prgrams from your control panel, which should work but might not if the Maxis one is corrupted.

    As for the cdrw, could you post more info about the problem. Sorry I am on my way to sleep so I am tired and can't think straight anymore...
