Thank you. I highly doubt anything needs to be cleaned, as I have only had this computer for a little less than a month.don_apple wrote:This sounds like either the DVD is broken, or your DVD reader needs to be cleaned out.
One thing you could try is to make an image of the DVD (see https://www.howtogeek.com/228886/how-to ... and-linux/ for instructions), if this also fails you know the there is something wrong with the DVD or the reader. If you manage to create an image of the DVD without errors you can use this to try to install the game.
I may try that - thank you! It is likely the DVD and nothing else, because I can play another game I have with no issues. It might be worth a try, though. I'll look into it, but hopefully my other copy will come soon.
