Just wondering if anyone here can help me, cause im seriously ****ed off with EA.

I bought my lovely red alert 3 game,

I am lucky that I have my 20 character code....(not like sum!!)

But i cant even install the fecking thing,
it comes up cannot find "C:\program files\red alert 3/ra3/data/mapscampaign.big"

this always happens a couple of minutes into installation!!!

Does anyone have any suggestions
have two DVD drives, wont install on either,
My PC is a Dell 720 XPS, so more than meets requirements.
Turned off firewall, UAC, copy it over and install (wont all copy over)

I have no idea what to do,

urge to punch EA rising........

Go to the store where you bought it, and with a reciept ask for a new game, but let them check the game by trying to install it on a laptop or something if the error occurs then they should give you a new game but keep you kode^^

That's if they let you return opened PC games, I know mostly throughout the states that they don't allow it, in other countries... they might...

Thanks for your help lads, but so far nothing has worked,
tried copying over all items from the disc but Map_0 and Map_1 and one of the movie files refuse to transfer (doing my head in)

Nothing else has worked, (even says Map_1 is corrupt when i try to open it)

Tried all the options on the EA site, and the forums, it appears that a few people are having this problem, and EA has done nothing about it, or is not getting back to people on it.

Ah well, i wont give up hope,

might just return it to the shop and get a new copy, though at this stage im ****ed with EA. The chances of me, buying one of there games again, is very, very small.

I was just wondering if you had tried the disk in another system. Frequently I have found that some optical drives my not be reading the media correctly. Dust buildup often can degrade the optics in DVD readers to the point where they read sometimes but not all the time (as the laser starts reading the outer tracks).

Just a guess.

Go back to the store you got it from, and get a replacment copy. All stores should let you do it,if the disk is defective.

The first shippment of UT3 was that way. The master disk was defective, hence all of the disks that were pressed were exactly the same.
