This will have no effect on your other software.

Try using a different CD/DVD drive or try a manual installation. The manual installation instructions are early in this thread.

I'm asking this because I was doing the manual installation and it asked for disc 2 - then I wasn't sure what to do.


I need to know the same thing. What do I do?

Try close all background tasks including anti-virus.

Try renaming the install shield folder in case that's the problem.

Double-click on the My Computer icon.
Double-Click on the C:
Double-Click on Program Files then on Common Files.
Right-Click on the InstallShield folder.
Select Rename.
Rename it to InstallShieldOld.
Start the installation again to reinstall the InstallShield components with the newest version.

Also update the CD/DVD drives firmware from the manufacturers website.

The firmware update for your CD/DVD drive. You can get them from either the PC manufacturers website or the drive manufacturers website.

Have you got another CD/DVD drive you can try?

Hello WillysCutie and welcome to Lockergnome!

I'm sorry but I can't provide you with an installation code.
Contact EA customer services and they may issue with a new one. Otherwise you'll have to buy the game again.

Hello supervixen2x0 and welcome to Lockergnome!

Have you got another CD/DVD drive you can use? If so try installing the game using that drive.
Have you tried a manual installation?

Actually all I did was rename the installshield folder, and it was fine, lol Smile I also cleaned the disk which I noticed had a few kinda like dotted scratches on a small area. But it's all better now!! Smile Thanks!
