Hey guys,
When i try to install etm, during the install i get an error saying that "unreadable volume, please insert etm_d1 in drive F:" (something like that translated from dutch). I get this error everytime :mad: sometimes it happens when cd2 is in the drive and i never passed cd3, on cd3 i get the error everytime. Hope you guys get the problem and know a way to fix it, cause i really wanna play the game :(

Not sure exactly what the problem is, but if by chance they are not the ORIGINAL disks then that would be a reason. If they are then you might try swapping out your CD drive...

Good luck.

they are the original cd's just bought them today and the drive i use i bought it also today so its brand new. The weirdest thing is that it is working perfect on another machine :S

oooh i had this error many times...heres the solution i figured it out after trial and error ok.......when it says wrong volume xxxetm1 wait till all the files have stopped copying from that cd then hit the windows key and go eject that cd then put cd 1 in then maximize again and hit continue then the message will go away and then put the next cd in pops up like if it happened on cd2 and u waited it will say put cd3 in i hope this helps you :)

ps....its not w hardware thing i think it something wrong with the way the game installs because i used the original cd's and then made copies using clone cd and daemon tools and it did the same thing many times took me about 2 hours to get the ****er installed :(

ok when you put the first cd in start the installation........now when it has the error let the files finish copying....(you can see the progress in the little box wait till the file doesnt change for about a minute).......now when it stops copying eject the cd you were using and insert the cd that its asking for on the wrong volume error......now after the light on the cd rom drive goes off click "continue" on the box......now the put the next cd in message will pop up put whichever cd in its asking for and click ok.......if the wrong volume thing pops up again wait for the files to stop copying and then put the disc in its asking for most likely disk 1 then hit continue then when the next cd dialog pops up put the next cd in.......this "volume" error shouldnt happen more than 3 times.......thats as clear as i can explain it at 5:30AM....hope it works

could have used Alcohol 120% made some images, setup 4 virtual CD drives, loaded the images and told it to look for what it wants itself

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
