Windows 7: recently downloaded daggerfall and it keeps asking me for a disk.

recently downloaded daggerfall and it keeps asking me for a disk.

So i recently downloaded daggerfall (off the elder scrolls website), which is the second in the elder scrolls series and installed it using dosbox. It then after much installation stated that i required a CD. But this shouldn't have happened and i followed all of the commands of the installation guide as i should have. Please can some one help me fix this so the game will work.

What version of DosBox are you using? It just worked for me with 0.74 (0.73 advised in tutorial. I followed and didnt get a CD prompt, did you perform the cd mounting step properly?

mount d "drive and location of the extracted folder DFCD including the \dfcd bit" -t CDROM -label Daggerfall

if you followed the instructions in the PDF to the letter this will be:
mount d C:\dosgames\dfcd -t CDROM -label Daggerfall

Hmm i think i'll have a go at deleting it all and installing it again. I'm also using dosbox 0.74 so i guess it should work properly. I mean the installation works and everything, it's just when i get past the install; type in Dag213 and then when it says type dagger to play, i type dagger and it asls for a disk.

Help running Daggerfall patch fixsa175 in Dosbox 0.74
Hi all, Hope it's ok to ask for some Win7 x64 dosbox help on this forum. I have downloaded Daggerfall from an abandonware site and it runs perfectly by dragging a "Dagger.bat" file in to the dosbox icon. However, I've reached a game-breaking bug which I think can be resolved by running a...

I tried to run a check disk of my C: (System) drive, and was unable to do so through Windows.
