Can anyone suggest a fix for this problem? After installing swbf2 when i try to play game i get following error "unable to authenticate original disc within time limit" what the hell does this mean. (it is original disc in drive by the way)I have run the game once when i was given choice to straight after install when it asked if i wanted to veiw readme and run game. So the game does work and runs well but has only done it once.

Did you put the disk in the same cd drive as you installed it from (assuming you have more than one)?

Try running the game in Windows 2000 combatility mode. That seems to solve a lot of problems. Try running the game from the auto-play on the DVD instead of launching it from your hard drive.
