Hello,

I have the game Age of empires 1 from 1997 and I try to run it on my W7 computer,
the problem is, it won't even read it. I can't access it. (yes the cd is in perfect shape) how do I make it show up in my drive?

Those disks were made for Windows 95. Windows 7 will never be able to read them, the disk are 4 generations too old.

these disk will not work on new computer. so you need try to copy this game into new disk and then run that disk on your computer. that will work fine.
