How to install?

Discussion in 'F1 2013 - The Game' started by Manolis Sigoulakis, Oct 7, 2013.

  1. My computer can't recognise the CD. What could I do?
     
  2. I don't know what exactly do you mean by can't recognize it, but try the CD on a different computer. If it doesn't work, return the CD to the shop and get a new one.
     
  3. OK, thanks Kristian :(

    It is like there is no CD in the computer.
     

  4. It could be your hardware. Try putting a different disc inside.

    Redeem the key on Steam, download it off of Steam. Unless your connection has limited traffic / is slow that should be the best solution. :)

  6. Υοu are probably right. F1 2012 and FIFA 11, have the same problem. Thanks anyway.
     
  7. Sorry, I didn't see your message :)

    Thanks, it is downloading slow but steady :)

    Tom is correct. You will have to add you game to Steam anyway.

    So why not do it now?

    Run Steam > Games Menu > Activate a Product on Steam

    Now it will download and install. No need for the DVD ( it's not a CD :) ) after that.

    Cheers

    EDIT: I was 20 seconds too late to post, ignore this message.

    If the slow down is at your end, there nothing you can do about it.

    If it's a Steam problem, you can change the download server location. I have done this before when the UK servers were busy. I pick a server in a part of the world that is asleep, or having breakfast

    Steam > Steam Menu > Settings > Downloads Tab > Download Region
     
  10. It is a general problem at my village, they are fixing something and the speeds are quite slow. They expect it to be fixed by Thursday ;) Thanks anyway :)

    I can let you have a couple of tin cans and some string, if you think it would help? :whistling:
