So even though disc 1 gives me a SecuROM error, they claim there is no SecuROM problem. Thanks for the help SecuROM! Sent this back:
I understand what you mean on disc two, it gives me no SecuROM error, but I can't imagine the SecuROM error I got on disc one is supposed to happen, and I wonder if maybe I get an error on disc two because I am supposed to launch the game through disc one, which I can't do because of SecuROM... disc one is usually the launch disc after all, and there isn't even an autorun menu on disc 2.
My expectations for help are quite low.
