SecuRom Wont Let Me Play Game
Posted 26 July 2013 - 07:02 AM
I purchased a retail copy of GTA 4 3 years ago. I played it to my hearts content and was done with it. Now I was re-visiting some old games in my collection and since GTA 4 has some cool PC mods out, I thought I would get back into the world of Liberty City again. . . . . Buutttt there was one problem.. My laptop didn't fare too well over the years and the damn DVD drive is busted..
Since the Drive would not detect the disc no matter what I did (weirdly enough it reads new discs but not old ones although my GTA 4 is MINT condition), I had to resort to making Image files, cart them over through a pen drive and install the game.. Installation completed, legitimate serial key given, game is loading and . . . . . . . . BAM . . . SecuRom ERROR!!..
I mean WTF.. I get it, that it keeps out pirates and sh*t but even legitimate users get screwed?.. Is there no work around except to get my drive fixed?.. I never really needed the drive since barely anyone uses discs nowadays.. Need your help and insight on this.. It sucks that I actually purchased the game but their security software is so dumb that it detects a legitimate disc as an error..
