Geez, what luck. The first time I can recall ever having ordered a game online and it looks like I'm going to have to send it back. I can't even install it. The event viewer shows a bunch of errors saying the device has a bad block.
Well, that's strange. It works fine in my 2nd system. The install program started immediately just like you'd expect. Hmm, I think I have the same DVD burner in both systems although they were purchased at different times.
Edit: I just shared the DVD drive from the system that works and that seems to be working okay. I guess I'll look for updates for my burner later on.
