Each CD has a specific CD key to avoid making copies of it to sell it to others. This means each CD can only be installed once.

Your options:
- Get the original version of your copy, uninstall this on the PC it is used on, and install it on the PC you like with the CD key (the CD key can be found inside the box or on the backside of the manual).
- The second option is to just make sure the original version is uninstalled wherever it was installed on, so you can use the original CD key (if you have it) to install it.

Otherwise I am afraid you cannot do anything with a copy of the game, and you will need a new CD key, but that is only gettable by buying a new game (original). The goal of a CD key is to avoid having people making copies, and that is what I think happened to you.

My cod mw2 is scratched and we dont know how and when we try to play it says disc is unreadable wipe on a cloth then resart the console and we did that and it starts all over again how can we get it to...


It might work if you buy a disc cleaner, they usually cost $4.99.

If this doesnt work it might be too scratched and you might need to buy another copy.

You could also try borrowing a friends copy and installing it to your hard drive, your copy should work if it isnt too scratched.

You will have to purchase a new copy of the game to be sure you get a working CD-key. You have to register the cd-key with most installations.

Hi,

First I'm gonna start off by saying CoD is amazing. I play it all the time on my 360. lol

Now that I've gotten that outta the way, on to your problem. You say you've already returned it for another copy, so that rules the disc out.

Next, have you tried playing any other games to see if they work? If not, then it may be your TV.

I suggest you try to hook it up to a different TV.

If none of your games work even on a different TV, then it's most likely your PS3.

Hope this helped some :)

Java errors, cant read files


1. Copy the .jad and .jar files to the 'Other Files' folder on the phone.

You can copy the files from Samsung PC Studio's 'Phone Explorer', Windows Bluetooth File Transfer or just copy it straight to the memory card and move it over to 'Other Files' from the phone's menu.

2. Exit all menus and type in this code: *#9998*52824678255#. (*#9998*JAVAINSTALL#)
You should now get an 'Activated' message. Java install is enabled.

3. Go to the 'Other Files' folder and select the .jad file.
Press 'Options' (left touch key) and you should get a 'Do you want to install' question.
Press 'Yes' to install.

4. To deactivate the Java install, simply type the same code again.
You should now get a 'Deactivated' message.

Apparently the E900 is similar except the code to install is *#9998*5282# -> install MIDlet password: 235282
