Can't play backup DVD of UT2K4 - please help

#1

My friend burnt me a copy of Unreal 2004. His copy is the DVD featuring all 6 cds and I gave him a blank DVD. He burned it successfully and the installation package executes fine. However, when I click on play Unreal 2004 it says “Backup CD please insert original or visit Securom site for more details”. Something to this effect is said, I can’t remember exactly what but it’s about my backup copy. How do I get around this? I’ve tried the three no-cd cracks but they didn’t help (I think because I had a missing .dll which I couldn’t find). He managed to burn the DVD because he has a new PC which is designed for gaming and is awesome.

Please help
Thanks
I’ve read a few other threads on here regarding this game.

A little late to say buy it and isn’t the pot calling the kettle black? The topic/issue discussed on this section isn’t moral or legal so why are there rules about not discussing this? :confused:

Fair use, means a person is allowed to make a backup of a legally bought game/film etc to be played on their machine for personal use only. What you are doing is denying the company a sale by using an illegally accquired copy. In this forum we help others create legal backups that do not modify the game in any way (ie no-cracks reverse engineer, hence bad), so infact what we do on this site is very legal and no this is not calling the kettle black.
