sounds like u patched the digital copy without running it first, u need to run your digital copy first after install, register your key, once thats done, exit game, run patch and your good to go.

I just got the digital copy, I patched it up without running the game first and get the insert cd error like you, I uninstalled and reinstalled and followed those steps after visiting the atari forums.

thats another strange thing. it didnt ask me for my key when i reinstalled it? it must still be in the reg somewhere? i guess ill uninstall it *again* and try to run it before i apply the patch. thx alot for your help, i need all i can get

I think it might leave the key in the registry, but it doesn't ask you during the install, it only asks you after you've run the game for the first time, right before you login.

If you don't already, backup your save game folder.


Where is the NV News club? I can find the one I prematurely made 3 posts above but not the old one??

It is very near. Highly recommend buying the game now before there aren't any more in stores.

"You thought it wouldn't happen but there you go

The Test Drive Unlimited PC Megapack will soon be available for download with 46 immaculate dream machines.

The 45 cars and one motorbike included in the pack range from American muscle to Italian grace with some of the most desirable vehicles on the planet rendered in painstaking detail. After installing the pack, all cars can be bought as normal from the relevant in-game dealerships. "
