when I go to install the game I get through the installer on disc 1 and then disc 2 starts, but i guess my disc doesint have the files that belong in the /tracks folder. I tried all the stuff on ea's website and i also tried using gamedrive to copy it but its still missing. then i tried to install the demo version of it and i took the files from there and adding it to the disc 2 folder(because i copied all the discs to my hdd)and itll go through disc 1 and then just stop, saying: please insert disc 2 into drive:c and i move it there and it still says that. so if you guys think i should just get new discs or maybe you could tell me were i coud download the 2nd disc or what? or doya have any other ideas? please help!
Here's what I found on manually installing from harddisk:
For the CD edition:
Make sure to follow the steps below exactly as they read, or else the install may not work.
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Right-click on the Local Disk C and choose Open.
3. Right-click inside the window and select New, and then Folder.
4. Name the folder Disk Images it is important that the name has a space in it.
5. Double-Click the new Disk Images folder to open it.
6. Right-click inside the window and select New, and then Folder.
7. Name this folder Disk1.
8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 while substituting Disk1 for Disk2 and so on until there are 4 'Disk' folders followed by a number 1 through 4. it is important to note there must not be a space between "Disk" and the number.
9. Insert Disk 1 of Most Wanted into your CD-Rom drive and if the autoplay starts, cancel it.
10. Double-click My Computer to open it.
11. Right-click on your CD-ROM drive and choose Open.
12. When you see the contents of the disk in the Window, click on Edit at the top of the window and choose Select All.
13. All the contents of the disk should now be highlighted, click on Edit at the top of the window again and choose Copy.
14. Open the Disk1 folder you created under C:\Disk Images; click on Edit at the top of the window and choose Paste. This will copy the contents of the CD into the Disk1 folder.
15. Repeat steps 9 through 14 for the remaining disks until you have copied each disk into its appropriate folder.
16. Once all the disks have been copied, remove ALL CDs from any drives.
17. Open the Disk1 folder under Disk Images and double-click on autorun.exe to start the installation.
18. To save disk space, you can delete the Disk Images folders after the installation has completed.
if you cant install nfs mw there are compressed zip files (0compressed,1compressed,2compressed,3compressed) extract them to C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Need for Speed Most Wanted and then copy the other files like .exe,DAT file,DLL and txt files and then run the game..............
