    When I want to view a CD I get the following message:
    Your system does not meet the minimum requirements: 64 MB of RAM

    How can I circumvent this as my system more than meets this requirement?:mad:

    What do you mean by "view a CD"? Just look at the table of contents? Or run an old program that is probably not compatible with a 64-bit system? Or something else?

    Is this problem with just a particular CD, or all CDs?

    Thanks for your response. I think I used the wrong word when posting this problem.

    I get this message when I insert certain CD's into the computer. I have this Wet Brushing Techniques CD that was sent to me by a ceramic mold company that won't open. All I get is the message : Your system does not meet the minimum requirements: 64 MB of RAM
    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer

    Are you trying to open it in Windows Explorer? If not, what happens when you try that?

    If you're getting that message immediately after putting the disk in, then some program is set to automatically run, and that program is clearly poorly written if it's giving you a message about 64MB of RAM. If you don't know what's supposed to be on the disk or how it works, just browsing the contents may or may not help. You can try. You'll probably need to call the person or company you got it from and tell them it doesn't work on modern computers.

    Hi!
    I have tried to open the CD in Windows Explorer and nothing happens. I clicked into my computer and the CD is showing up and when I click on auto run I get a message box where I click on open using Windows Explorer. When I do that nothing happens.
