game does not work

I only have disc 2-soviets...

At first the disc had alot of scratches on it, so I got it repaired nice and smooth but it still doesn't work! Same problem as before, it goes into a black screen after the ps logo and then nothing. It is the correct region disc.

Not to be rude, but what do you expect us to do about it?

Your only real choice is to download it from PSN, unless you're incredibly lucky and can find a second-hand copy.

Somehow I have three copies of this, I'm sure I only bought two.

Unfortunately it sounds like that the data level of the disc has been compromised at some point, rendering the game unusable.

It's harsh news, but if you're limited to a PS1 or PS2, your only option is to get another copy of the game - If you get one from a shop, ask to view the discs before you buy. If buying online, make sure you make note of the description and seller details

If you have a PS3 or a PSP then you should be able to download it from the Playstation Network. I can't give details for that as my newest Sony console is a PS2 Slimline.

Might have been a specific problem, like needing to insert disc 1 in first as an example, or a problematic first edition batch. Expert knowledge is sometimes more useful than a search engine.

For the playstation C&C games (and indeed, almost ALL playstation games), every disc is also a stand-alone copy of the full game, so you won't need to insert disc 1 to play it.

For multi-disc games such as Final Fantasy or Metal Gear Solid, you tend simply insert the disc that your memory card save that you'll be using last used. This isn't the case for the Playstation Command & Conquer games - each disc is a stand-alone faction campaign disc. Red Alert & Retaliation also have skirmish & Link mode enabled on each disc.

To be honest, I've not yet come across a bad copy of the C&C games (and my Retaliation Soviet disc is so well used that the briefings are now starting to skip...), but I do have a game where the data sectors on the disc have been compromised - Final Fantasy 9, but that was due to a poorly-maintained PS2 slimline scratching the disc.
