Hi all who are nice guys and want to help me, so my problem is that i purchased gta IV just at a store for PC a few months ago to start playing as soon i purchased a new PC.

 

On my old PC the game just worked but of course of a horrible framerate, but now i finally have a new computer who can run the game good enough i installed and try to start playing gta, but after like a day i get:

 

No disc inserted.

Please insert the original "Grand Theft Auto IV" CD/DVD.

Please have a look at (link with stuff i don't really understand) for further, more detailed information.

 

while i already have the disc inserted but it just won't read it.

 

Please, if anybody could help me i would really appreciate it, i don't want my 20 euro's to be trown away.

The location where you have installed your GTA IV, try to launch from there. And when you open the folder where you installed GTA IV, there are two executables (or .exe file). One is LaunchGTAIV.exe and the other is GTAIV.exe. Try to launch the game using LaunchGTAIV only.

naw, naw, naw. original poster, i am reading your specifications and you left out your power supply. people who do that usually spend money on quality components EXCEPT for the power supply.

some things to try:

does your computer read ANY discs at all?

borrow an external dvdrom reader/writer that uses usb. does the disc work now?

if the answer to all of these questions is no, you probably installed some game or operating system modification that won't play properly with gta iv copy protection (ie daemon tools)

Yes my Pc reads all other discs exept for gta, and i don't think my specifications really matter right now my pc can run every game so that is not the problem.

i think the disc is just damaged, i don't know how, but it has tiny scrathes on it.

and thanks for the link shepzki, i hope it works


where he hell is the half of my text? i only see a while stripe instad of my text


i am sorry for all those who tryed to help me, i will have to buy gta IV AGAIN on steam

it aint the DVD's fault you scratched it. That's like me eating a bowl of ice cream and blaming it for me farting! LEARN HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR POSSESSIONS.

My dumb friend, the CD has been in the box for months before use and nothing was done with it untill i got my new pc, so i don't know IF it is really "scratched" , maybe there is something wrong with the laser/reader of the CD, so next time think better about what you say.

I don't think its the problem with the disc either. You did try installing the latest patch, didn't you?

By the way, a cousin of me (not roman) is coming soon to help with some small things with my pc, he will also check the laser/reader and all that stuff, so he can tell if it's the CD or the pc.
