Try it on another computer, the disc. Can you use other discs with your computer?

Perhaps your disk got fragmented from to many save files. Try putting it in the microwave for about seven seconds to defragment it.

-spokomptonjdub: steel be with you too lol

-MR Snake: yes the disc works on my laptop

-Jesus Christ: lets not

-entertainer: i have a new one

i think it has to do with securerom, i managed to reinstall with an downloaded image, and i can play without the disc, but my original disc doesnt work on my pc...... ah well it works now anyway.....

You don't even need the disk if you start it through Fallout mod manager. You just can't start it through the launcher, or securom will whine at you half the time even if you've got the fucking disk in and working fine. What a well programmed game.

Your DVD Rom might be failing. I realized that after two other games had issues installing and then F3 GOTY did, I knew I had a rom issue.

EDIT: Frak me, didnt realize how old this post was. Eek. Sorry.
