Default Game.dat error with Rise of the WItch King

I always get a 'game.dat error' after the splash screen of the Middle Earth 2 expansion pack.

I have an 8800 gtx, and have no idea why this is happening. Can anyone help?!

You got any antivirus program installed?

Yes, but I stop them running prior to playing, and I've tried running with them completely de-installed. No difference.

Have you ever used a NO-CD/NO-DVD crack?

BFME used to have issues when you changed hardware as security protection. You may just need to reinstall the game.

I've re-installed several times. I';ve tried a no CD/DVD crack. It has now got my BFME 2 game working, but not one seems to work for the original or expansion!

What do you mean by loosening memory timings?

Can anyone help further? If not, do I have a right to demand money back from EA?
