I have installed the game no prob. I played it for 2 hours. The next day it tells me it can't find or authenticate the very disk I had just played on! My computer exceeds all requirements and all the drivers on my computer and the firmware for the dvd player are all up to date. I also reinstalled it a few times to make sure.
Why does it work one day and no others?! wallbash_red.gif

o.O You could just ask for the money or store credit to buy the game tongue.gif

BTW: GTA:SA for the PC has SecuROM 7 protection. So under the ISO making image settings make sure you select that.

hehe this past year I got a nice gift card for Best Buy that I used on Karaoke Revolution (Sorry, I'm Japanese, my DNA pulls me towards games like that with intensity for some reason) for Xbox and a new headset for my PC, and just got SA myself. ^^

Hi,


the "disk could not be authentificated within time limit" error is most likely caused by the copy protection. There are several things you can do:


1. Download a newer driver for your dvd (if there is one - the hp of the manufactoerer of your drive is a good start)

2. Deactivate the DMA-Settings for your DVD. (Start-->Controle Panel-->System-->Hardware-->Device Manager--->IDE/ATA-Atapi Controler-->Primary Channel-->Advanced Settings-->Switch from "DMA, if available" to "PIO only-->same thing for the Secondary Controle Channel"

3. Deactivate all Applictions runnngi in the background, especially the Anti Virus Software.

4. Deinstall all kind of software meant to duplicate cd`s and dvd`s (for example Nero Burning Rom). You should also deinstall all kind of virtual drives, demon tools etc. The security software on the dvd will be triggered if it discovers stuff like that.

5. Try to slow your dvd down. If the driver software of your dvd does not allow to slow the dvd down, try to find a tool for it at the internet. Note: There isn`t such a tool for every dvd.

6. Pray or curse a lot ... don`t know if it helps, but it wouldn`t hurt wink.gif
