go to start, run, type msconfig, go to thestartup tab and disable everything except your antivirus and reboot. there may be a file still in use that the game uses and its not letting you re-write it. see if that works.

rip it to the hard drive as an iso with alcohol 120. it sound like that game has copy protection so you can't copy it.
