Hello everyone,

 

I'm running GTA San Andreas v2 (DVD) on my Samsung 2013 Notebook

 

Specs are:

 

Microprocessor A6 4400M APU w/ Radeon 2.70 Ghz

RAM: 6.00GB

 

Win. 8.1 x64

 

I am the admin account

 

Now I install the disk and the computer wont acknowledge or automatically  begin to install the disc.

 

How come? What are my options for a next step?

I'm guessing you have Autoplay turned off. Just browse the disc via My Computer and double-click Setup.exe.

No, I have checked this the problems appears to be Win. 8.1 x64 my E: drive is missing from the program folders.

 I have gone to the Winblows 8 forums and posted a question, now in the meantime, have you dealth with this issue before?

 

Thanks.

there have been a number of complaints in general from Windows 8 users.
Check the Video graphics specs of your machine.
Recommended System Requirements for GTA: San Andreas:
Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon XP processor (or better)
 384(+) MB of RAM
 16x DVD-ROM drive
 4.7 GB of free Hard Disk space for a full install
 128(+) MB Video Card with DirectX 9 compatible drivers ("GeForce4" or better)
 DirectX 9 compatible Surround Sound Card
 Game pad** with twin axis analog controls (USB or Joystick Port)
 Keyboard & Mouse

Have you tried a "Compatibility Mode" (XP, Vista, et.)?

Hi Lil Weasel, It's not my system specs since I play COH2 just fine. I have inserted 3 diffrent types of discs (1 movie dvd, 1 audio dvd and GTA San adreas v2 DVD) and none of the discs are running automaticly yet when I try search for the names nothing comes up. The problem is Windows 8, it's garbarge.

I can't speak for windows 8 as I only tested the beta versions but windows 7 can have similar problems specially with drives for some reason, try to go to the control panel and uninstall the DVD drive and restart the PC it should restart and reinstall those drivers and that might work, I myself had a couple of errors like this that windows wouldn't recognize the drive and it worked afterwards
