I am frustrated with this error message.

I just bought The Sims 2 and it installs just fine, but will not start.
Does any one--so far I have been out of luck--know of or have this
problem? EA Games were of no help.

1. This is my Original dvd.
2. I have no virtual drives.

Please help.
Thanx
David

So, you just select the game in the start menu or a desktop icon and it gives you this message right off the bat?

Ummm...of course this is in the DVD drive and not a CD drive we can all assume safely, right?

EA the makers of The Sims 2 told me, after a while of being on the phone, that the problem was my Lite-On drive. "Liteon's are cheaply made so they do not read very well". I tried the drive in another computer and it (the game) installed and ran perfectly.
Something is not quite right with my system if it only happens with mine.
