I am having trouble transferring games to Windows 8. I get error messages that prevent the files from loading on the C drive, but can boot off the disc drive. However, then they insist on looking for BTL files.

This has probably been posted before, but I am slow to convert and lost the fix. Please send comments.

Thanks.

thanks, but it doesn't fit the windows 8 options, it seems to be a windows 7 fix. I sent a note to HPS, maybe I will hear back.
