Thanks for the reply crossg and happy new year
i’m already doing that since the Liteon company doesn’t seem in a hurry to fix the issue (actually contacted them back in november but got nothing).
The disc can be read fine on my laptop (toshiba drive) and my LG drive in an old P3 puter (yeah like i’m gonna play it with that lol, but still it can read and installs it fine)
both of these are using windows xp sp2. the liteon is with Vista on my new quadcore.
i was actually looking for a firmware or some other kind of fix to this hardware problem my Liteon has with this disc.
The game companies need to contact liteon and cooperate in making new firmwares to download.
neways, ya it’s a pain to load the dvd, but the patch makes it all good.
they sure seem intent on securing their game huh ?
When will the industry realize that its not by spending extra millions $$ on security that they will stop piracy. i mean they keep increasing the prices to pay the game programmers and power hungry CEOs with outrageous salaries and perks or boasting privileges as they might call it (or blame it on gas prices wtvr)
and then more programmers for extra security wich they wouldn’t have to if the prices were more reasonable for games in the 1st place.
they just keep shooting themselves in the foot with all this “extra security” and the programmer/CEO “super star wannabees” (everyone loves big salaries eh but come on !)
Not to mention annoy legitimate customers with having to go through hoops with some antiquated serial number schemes or product keys just to install and use, what happened to fair use or rather fair install? lol they’re so used to giving serials that its like its not even registering that its a nuisance to legit customers.
Anyway, sorry for the little rant, we’re getting into well traveled waters here and not the point of the thread.
