    Windows 7 ejects RCT3
    Hi again, sorry if im asking too many questions.

    I've run into a problem where i've tried to install Roller Coaster Tycoon 3: Platinum onto my Macbook Pro, but every time, Windows 7 ejects the disk. Every other CD I've used has worked perfectly (Mac OS X install CD, Zoo Tycoon 2, Zoo Tycoon 2: Marine Mania, Printer Drivers etc). I've even capped the maximum RAM memory to just under 4gbs. What is causing this problem?

    Does the disk work OK in another machine? Boot back to Snow Leopard and insert the disk. Can it be read? If it's a good disk it should be able to be read even from OS X although obviously if it's for Windows it won't install.

    It does work on my old Dell Latitude D610 running WinXP SP2 or SP3 (i can't remember). I'll try loading it onto Snow Leopard later (i'm downloading some win7 updates at the moment) thanks for your help.

    The CD cannot be read in Snow Leopard, but it DOES work on my old laptop.

    Try cleaning the CD. If it works in the Dell and not in your Mac, it may be that the disk is scratched or dirty. The optical drives that are used in Mac notebook and desktop computers are very fussy about disks and will sometimes reject a disk that works in another machine.
