Apparently some people are having issues reading Disc #1? To my knowledge there is no single reason for this. This thread is intended for people to help each other out with dealing with their issues in regards to this problem.
Your issue could be caused by a number of different things. Before you go to far you should check the following
<UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>Your DVD disc is clean. Warm non-abrasive soapy water and a lint-free cloth can go a long ways.
<LI>Your computer has the latest and greatest drives and patches/fixes/etc for your OS.
<LI>You don't have any IRQ conflicts.
<LI>You've disabled or turned off everything running in the background, just to make sure nothing is causing a software conflict. This includes disabling any viruses, adware, or spyware you may have installed -- you're welcome to reinstall, upgrade, or even re-enable any viruses, adware, or spyware you may have afterwords.. although I don't recommend it.
<LI> You've made sure there is nothing wrong with your DVD drive -- and if you have two DVD drives you've tried it in both and gone so far as trying to remove one DVD drive, just in case (some games have conflicts with multiple CD drives, so why not DVD drives?)[/list]
Now that we're through that, the following is a list of drives that have had this issue. Drives that have had this issue but were in multi-drive setups are marked with a leading #- and grouped by the same #.
Drives that have had this issue:
<UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI> Ilsonic DVD Burner
<LI> LG GSA-4081B
<LI> LITE-ON COMBO LTC-48161 H (Dell Dimension 8200)
<LI> iMac SuperDrive
<LI> NEC ND-1000A DVD Burner
<LI> Pioneer DVR107d <disc 1 doesn't eject>
<LI> Sony DVD+RW 8x (Dual Layer) (Dell Inspiron 8200)
<LI> Teac DVD+RW DV (W58E dell dimension 4600) <BSOD on install>[/list]
If your drive isn't listed in the above but you are experiencing issues with Disc #1, please provide us information about A) Your Computers Make/Model/Manufacturer, B) Your DVD Drives Make/Model/Manufacturer/FirmwareVersion(if known), C) Your OS, and D) A complete and accurate description of the issue you are encountering.
If your drive is listed above, feel free to provide the same details.
If you have found a way around it, no matter what your drive is, let us know.
..... Volunteer Public Service Message Located Yonder .....
Now for my sanity, Please remember that the people here that help you are volunteers. They do not work for UbiSoft, they are unpaid, they do this because they wish to help you. If you want to scream, cuss, shout, and complain angrily please take a deep breath and explain your problems in a kind civil manner. Or contact Ubi as detailed HERE. But please try and be nice to them also, they are people to. And if you really can't contain yourself long enough to send a message directly to Ubi, thus insisting on attacking them, me, or any of the volunteers, or heck anyone -- then place it over here in THIS THREAD. Where it will more than likely be editted to make it acceptable for reading by the general public. If it's unrecoverable, it will be deleted. We understand your frustration, some of us have experienced it ourselves, but we are volunteers. Did I mention that complaining directly to Ubi is more effective than complaining here? Not to discourage complaints, you're more than welcome to make them and if a moderator finds it well reasoned and reasonably well written they will be sure to pass it on to one of their supervisors (who are Ubi employees). You are more than welcome to gripe
Now that we're through that, feel free to enjoy this thread.
PS: I assume you noticed that the last paragraph or so there is a repeat from my other messages on this same topic. That's not an excuse not to read it, rather it means read it and if you forgot what it says, read it again :P.
