right click my computer/properties/hardware/device manager
expand IDE ATA/ATAPI CONTROLLER
right click primary/seconday ide channel, should b seconday

and it should tell you wat its running, u can change by where it says transfer mode change it to PIO Only, if its on DMA if available

Strange.I have installed all this games and don´t had any problems.Even as i played them there don´t seemed any problems.

Bloodlust please post your system so we can maybe get more infos to solve this problem.You also should look at the HP´s of the Games.Aaybe there already exists a F.A.Q for this. :)

This error could be caused for a number of reasons, last time I was recieving this error was due to a faulting stick of ram, but it could be related to your swap file or a number of other things.
