Having problems with your Computer Games ?

No CD for a game. Need help!

\015 I accidentally broke my CD for a game and the game needs the CD to run. What could i do???? The game is command & conquer zero hour if that helps\015

Answers :

Legally not much except look at game stores and ebay for a used copy. I see the expansion for $15 or both games for 30. (See this link for the search i did).

In the gray zone you could get a no cd fix. it lets you play a game without the cd. I cant give you a link to any sites but try googleing it. also see this wikipedia entry for more info.

Also let us know how you broke the cd. maybe its fixable. Long shot but its worth a try!
