I thought there was something wrong with the discs at first - returned the game to the store, but decided to risk it again, just in case. After going through this process, everything is working perfectly, and now I have some favorite games to play again - it is a dream come true. Thank you so much. Running it in compatibility mode worked. Stay Tuned would only work on older computers.
I could not be more grateful. I am NOT a tech kind of person at all but your instructions were super easy to follow.
