Any tips on what I should do to get my dvdrom to read the FM disc? It can't be entirely broken, because it is able to read other new discs, like Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and most old ones, but not Anno, and now FM

but your system doesn't see disc at all, or you just can't open it/execute installer from it?
have you checked the disc somewhere else using other dvd drive? even if it's new maybe it's disc's fault.

I can hear that it tries very hard to read it, but after about 5 minutes it just gives up and I get a message that there is no disc in the drive...

It works on my girlfriend's computer so the disc is fine

It's really anyoing when I know that deep down, it still can read discs... It just won't read this one

but you said that also your drive can't read Anno. the newest one - Anno 1404?

Thanks dj, I have vista and it says that all drivers are up to date. Guess I have to get a new dvd rom then.. Damn crap quality on things nowadays, if it lasts over a year it's a miracle

Yes, anno1404 didnt work either, yet other new discs did. Strange. And FM 08 works, ah well, I could always play that instead, was really in the mood for FM now

IMO it's rather some issue with disc protection, than dvd drive fault, as the new disc protections will make your disc 'invisible' if you use old SATA dvd drive, because it is considered as a virtual drive..

I know that for FM09 worked the trick to download the steam http://store.steampowered.com/about/

then register, when you've done that login, and click Activate a product on steam. When you've done that, get your serial number from your FM2009 manual and enter it in there. And it'll download FM game so you' won't need the DVD.

However I have no idea if it works for FM 2010.

Hmm, sounds logical I guess. Don't know anything about SATA, but I've had this laptop for about 2 years now so probaly, it's antique...

More protections.. man, they're getting awfully paranoid, aren't they? And the consumers suffer because of it...

I'll check out that steam thing, thanks a lot for your replies

you can check if your drive is SATA or ATA via control panel->System->Device Manager->CD/DVD Drives

and next to its name you should have info if its SATA (the older ones) or ATA (newer), for example:

TSSTcorp_CDDVDW_SH-S223F ATA Device

And yes,in last years almost all big developers became pretty paranoid and include insane protections (f.e. allowing you to install game only three times, even if you had to format HD, or install new Windows). But they are inconvenient only for the 'good people', as pirates crack their protections easily anyway..

Anyway good luck with steam, because FM 10 is worth every penny you spent on it, especially if you're gonna play it online.

Steam did the trick! Thanks DJ! ...finally I get to take Dagenham & Redbridge to new heights
Are any patches/updates automatically installed now, or do I have to download those too?

Finally MLB 2k10 was released for PC two days ago...
I was waiting for this game for a long time, as it's the only baseball for PC's and 2k9 edition was pretty crap.. While I'm still waiting for delivery, first reviews are pretty positive and way better than about 2k9 edition.
I just hope it'll have much less bugs than NBA 2k10 where almost all game modes are unplayable on PC...
Anyway for the first there will be 'my player' mode - thing I've been waiting since I started playing any baseball games, and more features implemented in NBA 2k10 like MLB Today, and live rosters (and new pitching/hitting system) which will surely make game more playable than 2k9 edition.
While consoles got MLB The Show which is no.1 baseball game and will be this year as well, MLB from 2k games is only option for PCs.
I'm looking forward to it, and will write smth more after few days of playing...

some screens from Xbox360 version:

Since today we can play FIFA Online from EA Sports completely for free, as beta servers have been launched.. If anyone got some free time and decent machine (at least CPU: 1.7 GHz, RAM: 500MB, ATI 9800 or Nvidia 5900) then may visit http://fifa-online.easports.com/web/beta/home
and patience is key, as I personally got registered at third attempt due to some server problems.. Client weights 1 GB plus of course some patches after downloading the client..

I played FM 2011 a bit, as much as I have time to do it, and look at the beauty of a goal Sumulikoski scored for my team:

Anyone with a PS3 should invest in Mafia 2 if you were a fan of GTA games. Great game, great story.
