Hmm...it could be two things. 1) You dont have the original, you are somehow mistaken, and I cannot help you in that case. 2) I've had this problem with Caesar 3, and it could be the same problem that you are having. Ok, so read carefully. If you have installed the game from your CD ROM drive, whose drive letter is F: (say), and if you have another Optical drive whose drive letter is G: (say), and if you inserted first CD in G: drive and you are trying to play the same, you might get that "Insert Correct CD-ROM" error. So try use the same drive for playing which you have used for installing the game. This might solve your problem. I couldn't understand why Caesar 3 wouldn't work for me, and when I used the drive that I used for installation, it would work. So you could give it a shot. Hell you have nothing to lose :D

Might be just a faulty disk then - try technical support.

That you might want to read in the 'Read me' file and email one of them. Better still take it back to the store and ask for a replacement. Since you got it in a sle, I don't if that could be possible. But I think it's worth trying.

man this is killing me. its not the cd...its sometin to do with my drives or something. under EAHelp which comes with the game....they say for this problem: "Removable Drive Issues Removable hard drives will often force windows to view your systems drives differently. Most often affected is the letter of the CDROM drive. Examples of a few errors that are generated due to the CDROM drive letter being changed by a removable drive are an error stating to insert Game CD into drive or an error stating a game file is missing. To alleviate a problem of this nature, first uninstall the game using add remove programs or the games own uninstall utility. Then reinstall the game under the CD-ROM’s new drive letter association" i reinstalled it....but it didnt work. still same problem. damn its frustrating

Why not temporarily disconnect one of the optical drives and check if the game is working or not. If it isn't, we'll try to figure a way out.
