For some games the files are packed and not directly accessible on the floppy or CD. In such a case you will need to run the original game installer and then copy the files from where they have been installed to the directory in which you want to install the game to play with ScummVM.
Also some games (e.g. multi-CD games) need a bit more work to be installed. General instructions are given below. Specific instructions for some of the games are given
on the [[User Manual/Installing a game for use with ScummVM|Installing a game for use with ScummVM]] page.
Once the game files are on the hard drive, start ScummVM, click on Add Game (see also [[User Manual/Adding a game to ScummVM|Adding a game]]) and then you are ready to play.
