I'm trying to play this old game of mine, The Lost Mind Of Dr.Brain. I have the CD and CD case, on which I found the following:
PC / MAC CD
WIN'3.1 / WIN'95
If you have Windows 95, Autoplay is included. Simply insert the CD to run Dr.Brain.
The problem is, my laptop doesn't run Windows 95... I'm running a 64-bit Linux (Ubuntu-9.04).
I tried installing Windows 95 in a virtual machine (virtualbox) but I can only get it to boot in safe mode (and it's in some weird language..). I don't know if this can be a problem. So good, I have win95 now, but the problem is, it doesn't seem to find my CD drive, so I can't install the game...
I also have a virtual machine with Windows 7 on it, but it can't read the CD (Says I should check if I need the 32bit or the 64bit version of the software.. Well I don't think a 64bit version of Dr.Brain exists..)
So what are my options? Should I go looking for windows 95 CD drivers? Where could I find these? And then how would I install them?
Or can I do something in windows 7 to allow it to read the CD?
Or maybe there is a Windows 95 CD driver emulation for ubuntu somewhere that would allow me to read the CD directly from linux?? ( I doubt it)
Or maybe there is a way to create an .ISO file from the CD and open it with win95 from a shared folder... problem with this is that neither ubuntu nor windows 7 can even read the cd..
So, any clues?
