When I try to launch the game, an error message pops up saying "Please insert FF7 game disc 1, 2 or 3 and try again"

Before this message starts appearing, I was already playing the game through 7th heaven without any problems, and of course, I had done the step one correctly, otherwise I wouldn't had been able to play it. I just tried to run the game today and this message appeared. After the first time, I tried to mount the ISO again, but it didn't work. So I really don't know what to do. :-\

Maybe try running the game converter again? If you've already mounted the ISO and it's not working, you could maybe try using the USB stick option?

Did you update any drivers between it working and not? Running the GC again and having it set the mounted drive letter should fix it.

Sounds like the drive its mounting to is NOT the same one that was used previously hence the error becuase its looking at a different drive letter then the one its on. I have had that problem before and have had to manually change the drive letter to the correct one which ment going through the list and finding the correct one as I forgot which letter it was before.

The letter chosen during the GC can be found in the FF7_GC.log. That's always the one in the registry that is assigned the CD check when launching the game.
