    My computer can't recognise the CD. What could I do?

    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.

    OK, thanks Kristian :(

    It is like there is no CD in the computer.

    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. :)

    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

    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:
