I figure that you guys might know as well as anyone what is going on.

My ~5 year old rFactor DVD is cracking from the center out so I order a new copy from Amazon, same v1.255 that I have. The box appears to be the same.

The disk itself has distinct banding of two different colors that is like what I get when I copy a DVD. My old rFactor disc does not.

The disk label is distinctly different from my old disc, same thing, looks like a copy.

Whatever, it is what is, as far as all that but in the end it fails disk check on both of my PCs so I'm returning it.

WTF? I'm worried that my original disk will crack to the extent that I can't use it and will be locked out of racing.

It's been at least two years since I pointed someone new to rFactor and he had no problems with the disc ordered from Amazon.

Creating a copy that works is doable I believe, I can test that. I use a mounted image of my retail disc.

It's just used for the initial check as the copy protection on those old discs isn't Windows-compatible now anyways and you need 1.255g(?) to get around that.

Excuse me for asking but why are you worried about a disk? I've never needed a rF disk, just downloaded rFactor lite. I do have one that came with a logitech wheel.

All ~20 of my rFactor installations are from the rFactor DVD.

rFactor won't load without the disc in the drive so I assume that if the disc cracks far enough it won't be read and my game won't run.

Obviously, worst case I guess I would have to start over with a downloaded rFactor but unprecedented issues with a physical disc aside I prefer having programs on disc. Pop it in, come back 5 minutes later and brand spanking new virgin rFactor installation ready to go.

How do you do multiple installations with Lite?

good luck Tom - I've always used the download from rfactor and pay for the key. Never a ran into any major issues except some limitations on number of times for full installs but unlimited lite installs.

btw - I like Steam guys - just subscribe to the channels and everything updates automatically.

Okay, then, being super gentle with disc.

Thanks for all the testing, Dale.
