C&C Generals / Zero Hour Error " Cannot locate the DVD-ROM"

generals zero hour dvd rom error cannot locate

Best Answer KINGOFDUGDUG, 18 September 2017 - 10:32 AM

Yup that did, uninstalled C&C: Online, worked after that.

 

But actually only after changing compatibility to windows vista SP 2.

 

Windows XP SP 2 still has the same error  " Cannot locate the DVD-ROM, Please insert the correct DVD ...." 

 

Also when playing online I get that mismatch error.

First of all sorry if I'm reposting.

 

  • I installed C&C Generals + Zero Hour The First Decade using an original CD with original Serial Codes.
  • Updated generals to 1.08
  • Installed GenTool
  • Using Compatibility - Windows XP ( Service Pack 3)
  • Installed C&C:Online

When I launch the First Decade game launcher the C&C:online launcher opens then I start zero hour from there. The game does not start, instead it gives me an error " Cannot locate the DVD-ROM, Please insert the correct DVD ...." 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

You should not be using the C&C:Online launcher to launch Generals or Zero Hour.       You don't need it if you have Gentool installed.      Try starting the game without that and let's see if it helps.
