Windows 7: Dora the Explorer

Dora the Explorer

Hi

Can I ask your comment/help of this CD Rom, please? I was given this CD game a while ago. When I tried to use it (for my child), it did not work I believe it is a problem of compatibility because the disc is quite old (in terms of the version). I did try to use Windows build-in problem solving etc but had no success Is there something e.g. a driver I can download to resolve this please

Here are some details of the disc:

* Dora the Explorer - click & create! The wizzle and the wishes
* Copyright 2005 Viacom International Inc
* Nickelodeon, Nick Jr

Any idea, please ?

There is a possibility the disk itself has deteriorated over the past ten years. Can you see the files on the disk?

Yes, I can see them. Actually after using the Windows diagnoses (cant remember exactly what it was), I was able to see some videos for about 1 or 2 minutes. Then it simply disappeared after that...

I suspect the disk has deteriorated but try finding the boot file for the disk, right click on it, click on Properties and try running it in XP Service Pack 3 compatibility mode.

Ah... yes, this is what my computer suggested (Windows did) and I could see the video (perfectly) for a few minutes... I had forgotten what it called... also, it had a few options which I did not fully understood ... but I tried one or two and the results were the same.

... one more thing... the first message shown when the disc was put in is ' library not registered ' ?

Hi

Attached is all the files. Which one is the boot file, please?

For info, When Windows did the XP version, it did it differently... so maybe I can try it manually

It's hard to tell from your list since you don't have the file types showing. Typically, a boot file will have an .exe at the end of the filename but often programs will have multiple files with an .exe file type so it becomes kind of a guessing game as to which one is the one you want.

Thanks. I now remember. Attached shows what I had done before. Windows gave me service pack 2 instead of 3.

I tried it again anyway... same failure

Pls see attached.

If Service Pack 2 didn't work, then Service Pack 3 won't. Most likely, you have a deteriorated disk.
