Bah, I seem to be having some really bad luck lately.
I missed playing SC3000, so decided to install it on my Pentium 4 system. Put the CD in the drive, closed the door, and somehow the CD shifted in the tray and got stuck between the door and the drive. The disc was slightly scratched. The game then installed fine, but apparently the disc got damaged in such a way that it fails the copy protection check when running the game as the disc heats up. Aaargh!
That, or both drives in my P4 system have either really bad error correction or are failing at the same time. I'll check the cable connections to be sure and try with another game...
Maybe I should just buy the GOG version...no more disc, so should be better, right?
