Hello And Help From A Newbie !!!!

Recommended Posts

Hello All

I am a new member here today !!!

I have recently purchased a laptop and bought this game online dvd version that has arrived today.

I have installed it and patched it to latest version.

After a little trouble with a missing directx file I ran the game....only for it to say :

media verification error: The media could not be verified to be a valid original. Please insert the original and try again.

I have tried disabling Norton anti virus and other processes but no joy.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...I am dying to get this game going...It looks amazing

Many thanks

Usually when that happens using another DVD drive helps - you can search the forums ArmA2 & ArmA1 sections for further info and ideas.

Being on a laptop doesn´t make it easier...

If nothing helps try getting a refund on the boxed product (stating it doesn´t work should be sufficient) and buy IF on steam, which doesn´t need dvd :D
