I have the patch installed, and it works on the first try every time. For me it was hardware. Windows wouldn't recognize a disk in the drive, and wouldn't start the auto-run sequence or show a disk in 'my computer'.
If you're seeing the Star Wars disk in the drive properly when you open 'my computer' but it still tells you to insert the proper disk then maybe you need to double-check the product key. My product key had a number 1 in it, but I wan't sure if it was supposed to be a lower-case letter L. There could also be a number zero/letter O mix-up. I was lucky and guessed right the first time on the number 1. I don't see why they use those characters in product keys and system generated password routines...
If you don't see the disk in windows 'my computer' then it's your drive messing up. The game software/patch has nothing to do with that. My drive wasn't very old either. I don't think those DVD RW minus drives were worth a darn. It wouldn't recognize certain brands of blank disks either.
