Disc 2 Error

When I put in my Disc 2, it comes up as Mass Effect 2. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I think they messed up the CDs.

  • Re: Disc 2 Error

    I am currently having this same issue, and have no idea how to fix it.  Any info on this issue would be appreciated.

  • Re: Disc 2 Error

    Same issue here.

     

    I just put the product key into Steam and downloaded the game there before installing.  It's a longer process, but it doesn't take too long.

     

    It's kind of annoying.  How does something like that happen?  I love Mass Effect 2, but how does ME2 files get on a BLOPS2 disc? 

  • Re: Disc 2 Error

    Same here.  It's a COD BO2 disc face, but it's been mastered with Disc 2 from Mass Effect 2.  So f***ing glad I stood in the freezing cold at midnight to get this on release day.

    Launch steam, look at your main game page and at the bottom click "+ add game", put in the serial number on the box and steam will download and install it. Job Done.

    • Re: Disc 2 Error

      I purchased my copy at Gamestop @ Clovis Commons in Clovis, California.  I am wondering if I can just exchange this with Activision for an Xbox copy or if I need to contact Gamestop to do that, I just don't really want to deal with it.  I could only download it to a friends computer as my ISP doesn't allow me to download such large files. 

      • Re: Disc 2 Error

        Once again, despite asking over 4 days there is no official word on what they are going to do about it. The workaround works but thats not the point. I could have saved the effort and just downloaded it from Steam. The issue is we purchased something in good faith and they did not deliver. I wanted BO 2 and I got half of it and half of Mass Effect 2, so I got nothing but a CD key which I did not have to goto EB Games in Toronto to buy it.

         

        Please give us something other than we are looking into it as this is not our issue but yours.

  • Re: Disc 2 Error

    I've bought the physical copy specifically so I wouldn't have to download the game.  This is not a "fail", we were sold a faulty/incomplete product.  What will you guys at Activision do in response to this?

  • Re: Disc 2 Error

    I just got off the phone with Activision customer support (after an hour on hold) and was told that they can't do anything for me (ie return, exchange) because they only sell through 3rd parties like Gamestop.  I was told to try and return it to Gamestop if I was unhappy with it, which I can't due to Gamestops return policy on PC games (can't return once opened).  /sigh

      Did you call and ask Gamestops? This is a exceptional case.

      • Re: Disc 2 Error

        yep, they said they nope and that they don't exchange or return pc games, just emailed an area manager through there website, we'll see what he says

        • Re: Disc 2 Error

          Well folks

           

          In the end if they don't do a recall on the disks I believe they will get sued and I would even contribute to the fund to get it started. There EULA does not cover this as I don’t have the game I purchased so I did not agree to the EULA

           

          All I have to say is try and sell a car as a Ford and once someone buys it they realized it was really Ford with a Honda engine and see what happens to you. It is called fraud

  • Re: Disc 2 Error

    Well EA just made me smile...they sent me a free key code for the Mass Effect trilogy after I sent them a picture of me holding my BO2 disk 2 with their software on it.  Which...is considerably more than Activision has done for me.

     

    I'd like to know why Activision can't just own up to their error and send people with the problem a good copy of Disc 2.  It's not like you can spin off another copy of the game with just that disc.
