Ok heres the deal, I burnt a copy of ofp from the orig CD, hoping to kinda preserve the original one.
and coz i have a lil brother who likes cds alot for some reason.
anyways it installs fine off the burnt cd, but wont play. it says it cant find the CD. i was wondering if anyone else has had this kind of problem, or just knows how to fix it.

Hmm... I'm not sure the license agreement permits the copying of the original CD... it does say '1 backup copy' but isn't that actual original CD that you have? (Whereas your working copy, is the copy you have installed?)
Grey areas, gotta love 'em.
Hmmm... dare I incur the wrath of BIS/CM? Well, I will say, one of the basic checks that FADE makes, is your product key. If, in a multiplayer game, two copies exist with the same key, FADE will be activated on both machines.
That said, if you would like instructions on how to make a 1:1 copy of a CD to which you hold legal entitlement to make a 1:1 copy of, mail me directly.
ScreamingWithNoSound: For example in Czech Republic, law permits you to make even billion copies, if you wish, but you MUST use only one of them at the time, and you are not allowed to sell, loan or even borrow them.
PneuMoniX: Use CloneCD - I made my copy that way.
You will have to use your Original CD at the moment, and beat your brother away from it.
