      mmm, there are a few minor scratches. I tried to to just copy the files to my hard drive and when it got to copy the zip file (data 2) it stopped ill try giving it a clean and trying again.

      Still nothing, i don't understand why it stops. Is there something i can download to fix it.

          if the scratches are causing the issue best thing to do is go to another "mates" game CD's and copy the one you have.. as long as you use your CD Key it won't matter...or you can contact EA to get em replaced..again as long as you have the CD KEY to prove you own the copy.

            ok, i gotta couple questions on this, you mean burn another copy? i think u have to have special hardware, i never could burn on & it work, but i know it can be done if your savvy.
            #2, EA will replace a scatched CD? you mean for a price right? surely it aint free.

            i had a game once, wouldnt install, had minor scratches, i got my friend who lives near me to bring his CD here & i installed the game on my pewter from his, & played the game with my CD & of course my Key. i still got that POS disk here somewhere. its a racing game.

            Walmart sells a disk resurfacer for about 20 bucks, i heard their good. but like i said i'm not sure thats your problem, just say in could be.

              yeah you can burn a copy.. and I just used Nero last time I did it and worked fine. And yeah they will replace a scratched CD but I'm not sure if its charged but if it is its prob not much since the software isn't what your paying for ..its the CD KEY

                cool, thx, me & my bro in law tried forever to burn a papryus racin cd, closest we got was burning it with alchohol on the HD.

                I dont worry too much im usually careful with the CD, but the replacing it is nice to know.

                "Hey Thanks" :salute:
