Ok, I had burned and backed up a copy of Myst just in case I did in fact mess up the original... I lost it, actually. Or it was sold in a yard sale...

And when I try to run the backup Myst ME (the DVD-ROM one, by the way), it tells me I don't have the Myst CD in the drive.

Would anyone happen to know the volume label on an original disc for the DVD-ROM version of Myst ME?

Thanks.

If you're trying to run this from your burned 'backup' copy, the disk label is the least of your problems.

Now I have no idea what protection scheme Cyan used on the media, but most commercially pressed CD/DVD's use a copy protection method that includes specific 'bad' parts on the disk to indicate it is indeed genuine.

Ufortunately it is pretty much impossible for disk copying software to include this information in the copy, so your disk copy is probably useless without finding some way of circumventing the 'cd-check' part.

Considering you don't have the original media, I would suggest just buying it used off Amazon, or trying to find a copy in the bargain bin at your local computer store.
