    Hi Everyone,

    I got my hands on F1 2011 DVD today. But unfortunately my DVD drive died about a month ago. So i created an image on my friends laptop and loaded the image on my daemon and installed the game. But then when i started the game i got some weird SecuROM error. Is there any workaround for the issue?

    There is ..... but it would not be allowed as a topic of discussion on this forum.

    So I expect this topic will be locked soon

    Maybe you can activate, download and run the game through Steam?

    Activate, as in use the CD key you own, no purchase needed.

    I did that with Race On, got the DVD, entered the CD key in Steam, and I have it on Steam now.
    Not sure if it will work the same for F1, because I don't have it, but it's worth a try. If you don't have an irrational hatred of Steam, LOL.

    Checked STEAM... the only option is buying there. Would cost me $50 again.

    Is there no solution to this?

    Checked what, the Steam store? You can't do anything through there, you need the Steam client.

    If you have it installed, click on Games -> Activate a product on Steam.
    If you don't have it installed, install it, and then do the above. You can also Google first, to see if it can be done, so you don't have to install the client for nothing.

    Or maybe someone who owns the game knows if it works.

    odd that you didn't say 'bought'

    i assume it's unopened, so return it. buy via STEAM.

    A new DVD drive can be purchased for about 15 uk pounds. I build computers.. Get a grip. No one here is going to help you pirate software.

    Well... I guess i should have written bought! I just wrote "got my hands" coz i felt like it. And no one's talking about pirated software here. I have been hanging around in different forums for many years now and i know piracy is not entertained in forums. So i would have asked this question on hack forums or something.

    BTW, if i got a pirated copy of the game then i wouldn't be asking this question coz all pirated games run without a DVD. Right??

    And sorry, DVD Drives in my country are not cheap!

    You could've tried the Steam thing in 2 minutes. If it works, great, if not, nothing you can do except rebuy or buy a DVD.

    I have that in mind. I will try it. Just exhausting all other possibilities!

    Just one question is that... if it doesn't work (I mean STEAM), will i be able to use the CD Key again?

    All other possibilities will take much more time, and will cost you.

    Yes, nothing will change.

    To be honest I use a downloaded version of the game yet I bought a unique KEY for 11 quid which is totally legal and there is a legal work around which is not piracy so people joining the piracy bandwagon really do need to do research first before calling genuine people pirates.

    "He who has clean hands should be the first to point" and all that
