I am very old time player on BZ1. I stopped playing with I had to go to the new operating systems when I my old computer with xp finally died. I now have new computer and can't load bz1 on my new computer. It seems to have trouble reading the old disc. I could really use some help. I can't bz loaded on my new computer as it won't install from original disc. Any advice would be appreciated.

Bummer

Welcome back. :)

Is your Battlezone disc still readable? (If you try to access the disc from explorer, does it show the Battlezone icon?)

If so, it might be a problem with the setup package, the original setup on the disc is a very old InstallShield one and in some cases it works very poorly on modern versions of Windows.
You could try setting compatibility mode to Windows 95 to see how that goes. Also, try disabling any antivirus software you may have, for the time being.

Once installed, you can apply the 1.5 Patch Installer to get Battlezone up-to-date and start playing.
