    My bro bought bought 2 PC games Bejeweled2 & Bookworm he installed them & they played well for a day. Then he get's an error,something about installing the disk which he did. Then
    it just flashed up the same message no reinstall just the error. We uninstalled the game reinstalled with the same results.
    Now here's where it gets crazy on my PC & friends PC both games play well & continue to do so a month later. Yet when put on his PC back to the error messages.
    How I find out what is wrong here?

    Check My Computer. If you have more CD/DVD drives than you have in your computer, you have them.
