For some reason, my computer won't install a game if it has more than one disc. All single disc games install without problems, and the first disc of a multiple set - eg. Diablo II, Age Of Empires etc. - will install fine, but when I get the message to insert next disc and do so, the installation simply stops and I eventually get the running system not responding.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this and how to rectify it?

Thanks for your time.

Do you have 2 CD Drives?
If yes,
Do you put the 2nd CD on a different drive?

No. Only the one CD Drive. I do have an external hard drive, though, if you might think that would make a difference.
