DC not reading EP Disc

Post by zoff » Mon Jan 18, 2021 11:46 am

My DC recently bit the dust so am having it repaired.
I have now purchased a new DC but my EP disc will not read on it.
Can anyone tell me why?

Either the laser is going up on your new system or it is one of the very few late models that can't read CDs (or your CD is just degrading, as all CD-Rs eventually do).

ok thanks for your reply.
When my other DC comes back from repair I will try it with that one and see if it works.

Looks like my Disc has bit the dust so will need to burn some more.
Excuse my stupidity but I cannot find the download link for the Expansion Pack.Totally forgot where I got it from.
Can someone send me the link or point me in the right direction.

Unfortunately we can't link to it here (against the rules of the forum).

Ok thanks but can you tell me where I can get the link from?
I looked on the sylverant web page and can't find it.
