"Please insert original CD of ParaWorld."

Post by TBB » Tue Jul 09, 2013 16:54 pm

I've downloaded DAEMON tools pro to create an image file of my original CD I found in my room (one of the first). I've mounted it to a virtual drive of DAEMON tools pro and tried to run it with the CD first to check it. Everything worked fine after a fix, however, it didn't work with any image file created directly from the original disc via DEAMON tools. It keeps saying "Please insert original CD of ParaWorld.". I've installed the latest patch, maybe it would work with an upgrade, but it doesn't.

I know it works with the CD and I did everything like it should to run it without a CD like I did with other games like Ballistics (an older game). I hope it's not the CD, but I think it's something with secuROM and DAEMON tools.

Can someone help me?

Welcome to the forums. The reason why the game won't run is that it uses TAGES drivers which run a disk check on load, hence why you get the please insert disk message. If you want to run pw without the dvd then why don't yyou just buy it from gamersgate? the Paraworld gold edition on gamersgate has the TAGES driver removed and it will work fine on windows 7 32 bit and 64

Thanks to Henry for making the animation

Just use the Win7 fix or the CD-Image from www.gamecopyworld.com

After searching what an IDE drive is (to mount an MDS) it works. Thanks for the fast response and the help.

Now I'm like a little child in a candy shop... :)
I've always wanted to play this game. I can even remember failing to boot it up when I was a kid.

Another question about this, is it legal and is everything on that site legal?

This depends on the jurisdiction you are living in. General answer: Not legal - rule of thumb: you own the game, you make use of your copy
