No scratches on the cd? Tried copying the entire cd to your HD? If it doesn´t work it´s proof your cd became somewhat ureadeble. If you can copy it to your HD try installing it from there.

Something that might work is if you go to ´Start´and than ´Run...´ and then you type in ´msconfig´. This is the Windows register and then do a search on any Freelancer files and delete them. After that, try to install FL again. This might work, but be careful with this register, because if you delete the wrong files.....

Did you format your HDD? If yes did you do a quick-format or the unconditional format? Doy you have 2 or more partitions on the HDD? Which OS are you using? What kind of a CD-ROM do you have? Is it IDE or SCSI(optional question)? Did you temper with your hardware lately? Answer those q´s and i´ll tell you how to fix things. I promise. <img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Struktura/Vidovi/rod-avi.jpg ´><img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Simboli/cinovi/cin13_13.jpg ´> Cpbuja ybuja!

I´m using XP and currently have 4 user domains. I completly erased mine (the one with all FL files) and then went onto all the other 4 and deleted any FL related files which were still present by deleting the necessary programme files. Didn´t do a complete Eraserure (just want to make that one clear sorry for the confusion) Somebody in the Techincal Forum said to use CD clone. I downloaded it and follwed their instructions. After copying it for an hour and a half it was staying at 3% so I got impatient and aborted. I had an idea of borrowing a friends FL disk, installing it onto my hard drive then returning it to him and play the game using mine. Would that work? I´d much rather use mine though so if anybody can tell me what to do I would be in their debt!

Try using a friends, this would help you to narrow it down a bit - if it still refuses to install then you know it is probably a problem with the hardware, if it does then you know it is most likely a problem with the disc. --------------- I know what you´re thinking. Did he fire six shots, or only five? Tell you the truth, in all the excitement I kind of lost track myself. Being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful hand gun in the world, it´ll take your head clean off. So you gotta ask yourself one question - do I feel lucky? Well......do ya? Punk?

Oh dear... You cannot copy the CD content onto your HDD because it has &quot;SafeDisc II&quot; protection. The only program that sometimes can do it is FarStone VirualDrive ver. 6.0 or later (use intelligent extraction method). The fact that you did not format your HDD tells me that the problem is in registry traces. You´ll have to edit the Master Registry... Start --&gt; Run... --&gt; regedit /OK/ In the submenu Edit, choose Find..., and type Freelancer. Delete everything that is directly related to it. NOTE: If you chose the &quot;Install for all users&quot; option during the first install... Trouble ahead. In that case, try to install it from a different account(other than the one it was installed on), again choosing the &quot;install for all users&quot;, then uninstall it from where it was originally installed. If you´re still not sure, correct my assumptions, so that I know where we´re standing... <img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Struktura/Vidovi/rod-avi.jpg ´><img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Simboli/cinovi/cin13_13.jpg ´> Cpbuja ybuja!

Thats why I suggested using cloneCD... And it shouldnt take ages to read to an image file although it depends on A) how scratched the CD is and <img src=smilies/icon_smile_blackeye.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> how fast your CD drive is.

CloneCD cannot read trough SafeDisc II without at least 6-bit interleaved overlapping... That´s why I asked what type of CD he uses... <img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Struktura/Vidovi/rod-avi.jpg ´><img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Simboli/cinovi/cin13_13.jpg ´> Cpbuja ybuja!

Once again: It depends on the type of your CD-ROM drive. If it is capable of doing 6-bit interleaved overlapping, and can read RAW and Cooked CD´s then it´s OK. (provided that it uses strandard buffered-burst read method, with 25 block units and 2 block synchronisation) <img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Struktura/Vidovi/rod-avi.jpg ´><img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Simboli/cinovi/cin13_13.jpg ´> Cpbuja ybuja!

Nero-Burning Rom, use the Nero Image Drive that comes with it. It managed to read Cooked CD in RAW mode (reads subchannel data), so it´s pretty good. <img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Struktura/Vidovi/rod-avi.jpg ´><img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Simboli/cinovi/cin13_13.jpg ´> Cpbuja ybuja!

Yes, it helps. The drive doesn´t support overlapping directly, but can emulate it with proper software. (as I predicted) You can d/l Nero Burning Rom trial version <A href=´http://www.nero.com/en/index.html#download´ Target=_Blank>here</a> (You wont need the software for more than half an hour anyway). After you install Nero, go to Start --&gt; Programs --&gt; Ahead Nero --&gt; Nero ImageDrive Installer. Now the Nero Image Drive will create a Virtual Drive device that emulates a standard CD/DVD rom. You need to build an image of your Freelancer CD. After that you´ll need to ´mount´ the image onto your new, virtual CD/DVD ROM. If the autorun is disabled, you need to use Windows Explorer to locate the Setup.exe file on the virtual drive and install Freelancer. If you still have problems, or need to ask anything, fire away! I´ll answer as soon as I can. Good luck. <img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Struktura/Vidovi/rod-avi.jpg ´><img src=´http://www.vj.yu/img/ilustracije/Simboli/cinovi/cin13_13.jpg ´> Cpbuja ybuja!
