If you have Nero software delete all of it, do a search to get it all.

Disable your Anti-Virus, or try to load it in safe mode.

Some DVD drives can't read FSX.
You may have to borrow a external one.

I uninstalled/deleted everything Nero on my computer and tried to install it in safe made but the problem is still the same.

I dont know anyone with and external dvd drive, is there anything else i can try, except buying a new drive?

Try updating the driver for your DVD drive.

Check to see if the disks are readable on another computer. If not, return the disks and get a new set, possible that the disks are bad.

It doesn't come up at all.
You see nothing??

Try putting disk 1 into the caddy, go to My Computer/open it/click on your DVD drive ( or right click on it and open).

Try to access the disk from the inside and get to the setup or install icon and see if you can get it to run that way.

No, I get no autostarts and I cant access the drive manually. The read light on the drives just keeps on flashing.

I tried every single tip on each of those links (apart from a fresh XP install because ive lost most of my disks whilst moving three time in two years) and the problem is still the same!!

Anyone got any more ideas?

A DVD drive only wll cost under $30, a DVD burner will cost under $50 (internal). That would be in the US.
I don't know where you are...you may get it cheaper, I've seen them here (US) for (on sale) $10.
If it loads on another computer then it's not the disk's it's the drive.
