Windows 7: NFS Most Wanted "Cannot locate CD-ROM"

OK, so try this fix: LINK REMOVED BECAUSE FIX IS ALREADY APPLIED.
Ok, it's called "Crack", but since you've got the CD, and have purchased it legally, I think you can download this...
EDIT; not tested this since NFS Most Wanted works fine with my CD; just googled and found this... So you're free to try out.

Depends on the version of his game, too. But I think that's easily attainable.

Good news, it worked!

I replaced the original speed.exe with the downloaded one. Then I set it to compatibility mode for XP SP2 and set it to run as administrator. Now the game starts normally after I mount the image with Power ISO.

Thanks guys for the help !

"Cannot locate CD-ROM"

Yes, I do have the correct CD in the drive. I've even tried making an image of it and mounting the image with Daemon Tools, still no change.

Other things I have tried are running speed.exe in XP Compatibility Mode and with Administrative rights. Is there a patch or something I need to install? I can't find a solution anywhere .

Here is a screenshot of the message:



Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it !

Yes, but he has LEGALLY purchased the game already, and he can't use his disc. I think he has the rights to play... And BTW; because it's working now for him, I deleted the link. Please delete it from your quote too.
Thanks!
