Moved to Troubleshooting.

If at first you don't succeed, you fail, and the test will be terminated.

It's because of Vista. Try going into the game's program folder (c:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas is the default), right-click on gta_sa.exe, click properties. Then in the new window that pops up, click on the compatibility tab and select "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", then in the drop down box, select Windows XP service pack 2.


Barring that, you may need to get around the CD loading problem. The CD's copy protection doesn't work too well with Vista. Here, google is your friend.
