Is it possible your disc is damaged? If any of your friends have the game I would borrow their disc and try that just to see if thats the answer. Other than that I can't really think of what could be causing it.

Where did you download the game from? The more information you give, the easier it is for us to help.

First step, would be to remove the game completely and the files from your computers registry. You can grab Reg Cleaner - free from www.download.com . Which operating system are you running?

When you install, you will need alot of disk space to install to. Before installing, make sure you have updated your Direct X and graphic card drivers.

Then......
Re-boot the system and try launching the program again.
Make sure you have Disc 1 in a local CD/DVD drive.
Close all other running applications, especially things such as: Clean Sweep, anti-virus software, ZoneAlarm, and CD burning software (for example: Nero or EZ CD Creator).
If you have more than one local CD/DVD drive, try all drives.
If you have a Virtual CD Drive installed, make sure it is disabled.
Make sure you have updated drivers for your optical (CD/DVD) drive AND that you have the latest motherboard drivers available.
Make sure you wait for the disc authentication after the program launches. It can take up to one-half minute or more for initial disc authentication. Your mouse pointer may change into a spinning disc pointer while the disc is authenticating.

My game does the same exact thing Dactillion. I have juss learned to deal with it. I donwloaded the update from Gamespy. Mine works sometimes on the first try, then sometimes you have to try it 5 or 6. But i've just ;earned to deal with it.
