    Help please install ( cd key details inc.)

    Bah, i reformatted my harddrive and now, i cannot install ut2004.
    The first time i got ut2004 it didnt work, but then i followed some advice and put the cd drive into PIO only mode, or something, i think it was from DMA (if applicable)
    Now even when i try that it doest work. ( a little bit into the installation and it has an error; (failed reading soure) or something.
    My cd is not scratched at all, and there isnt something wrong with my DVD drive. I know its probablly a compatibility issue, but if i got it to work before i should be able to get it to work again.

    help plz lol

    You're not being too coherent, you realize

    What happens when you put the cd/dvd whatever in the drive? Can windows read it? Does windows acknowledge that the cddrive exists?

          I couldn't install when i first got the DVD. It came up with an error near the end EVERYTIME. Considering how long the install took and how much I wanted to play it.......

          Anyway to fix it I copied all the files to my HDD (no error) and installed from there NP.

            lol yeah!! i havent played ut2004 for a week now.... !! ahh noo...
            DEEP BREATHS...

            ok.
            Yeah, it starts normally and all that, but then it seems to (randomly , im not sure) get an error.
            It says it cannot read the disk, and i should check for scratches but, the disk is fine. I know this becasue my friend installed it yesterday, and nothing has happend since then.

            The first time i got ut2004, the same problems happend. But i searched on google and it told me to go to
            My computer (right click)
            manage
            device manager
            ide ata/atapi controllers
            then go to properties and instead of it being DMA, change it to PIO only. I did this now but it still doesnt install

              And... by friend... you mean your other computer, right?


              I know thats what you mean. I'm sure that you'd never do anything to the effect of stealing.

                    sorry double post.
                    If you mean the friend thing, i figured it would be alright since he doesnt have internet. If not, dont worry; he just really qucikly went out and bought his own copy of ut2004 coplete with its own cd key :sour:

                        no its allright, ill withdraw that key from the thread once the game is fixed, so no once can use it . stupid you
