    Aloha,

    I recently recieved an unopened 100% legit transcender 70-270 software cd but when I put it in my disk drive it doesnt even recognise it, never mind run it?
    Other cd's music or software dont appear to have any problem in same in drive. If I click the drive properties (with disk in) from my computer my entire system stutters only the desktop wallpaper is viewable for approx 15 seconds then other icons appear again?
    Anyone any ideas? It's nothing silly like minimum hardware requirements. :blink

    Try it in a different machine and see if it will run. Then you'll deff know if the media is dodgy, but I think Phoenix has called it m8

    I agree with the majority. Bad disk.

    Thanks for the input,

    I just thought of that (doh) and it installs no problem onto my laptop (work) which is not the ideal location for it. Still going with dodgy media?

    yup
    dodgy media doesnt mean its dodgy on every drive tbh :)
    its more likely the media than the drive or OS tbh, had that prob with loads of disks, can u do a CD Copy at work and try the replacement? might not help, but worth a try

    ...or try copying the install files to a folder on the laptop, then connecting to it as a network share from the desktop and seeing if you can install that way.

    If yes, dodgy media :biggrin
