« on: July 31, 2013, 12:40:41 PM »
So i let my friend install island paradise on my computer and she took the the disc back. I thought if i uninstalled one of the games i own then reinstall it then my game would be on that disc. But when i click the start button it says please put in island paradise even though i reinstalled one of the games i own after i installed island paradise. Please help!!

You have to use the most recently released disc, not the one most recently purchased.

Have you tried uninstalling IP?

If you do this, and played any games with IP while you had the disk, those games will not be playable.

Yeah, the game uses the disc of the most recently released game to run. Unless you uninstall Island Paradise, you won't be able to play unless you have the IP disc.
