    How are you treating the poor thing?!

    You could try some strong nail varnish around the central ring - make sure to keep coverage even and not get any on the data part of the disc.

    i am treating it fine - all i am doing is putting it in and out of the box and its cracking. could it have anything to do with heat changes?

    It says you shouldn't put it in the microwave

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    The TDU PC case is terrible. Actually, ALL PC cases are terrible. They really should move to a 360 or PS3 style case

    Well most new games come with thoses DVD style boxes which Xbox and PS3 use.

    DR. EVIL, you should try to rip the info off the disk and run it from the computer, and if you want, mount it to another DVD.

    How long have you had the game and where did you buy it from?
    I'm a bit mental.

    CD looks pretty clean. I believe you only get a 90 day warranty with software but if the game disc is fairly clean buy a copy from EBGames or rent from somewhere then take yours back at a busy time like just before Christmas and they'll just want to get you sorted and out the door rather than spend ages trying to sort it out as being genuine.

    It is not illegal to make backup copies for yourself, it is however illegal to make copies and post it on torrent sites or sell it. So your okay.

    I suggest ripping the game, and mounting it on a virtual drive so you wont have to deal with the DVD all the time, its easy and quick to do. If you need help, I can help you through MSN, just PM me if you want help.

    One other quick solution is to, as said before, put some acrylic glue or that epoxy stuff on the center, and try to even it all out around the entire circle so it stays balanced, even though it wont be perfect. If its off balance, you can destroy the disk. But applying it all around that little area should balance it enough.

    the cracking is caused by repetedly pushing your disk over the centre of the case thats the problem with these fixed centre disk holders instead of the old push down fittings that dont require force

    Use a program LIKE MagicISO and burn your TDU dvd into an ISO format. Then get a DVD-RW CD and and burn that ISO onto it.

    And there ya go!

    Wow, i guess i should have read the whole thread. but you have to have a DVD RW Drive in your computer in order to burn DVDs. i do it all the time.

    I heard the cracking is caused by putting it in and out of the case to much.. the case just destroys the disk..

    You have to be careful - you're allowed to backup the contents (data), but not bypass the CD-check. So use of virtual drives is illegal if you're using them to prevent the need for the disk to be in the drive for the copy protection check.

    I've never had a problem, and I get games in and out of games loads (over years too), but you do have to be careful and not tug them out. Of course it's quite possible that it's a manufacturing defect, so taking it back to the shop as Diablo suggests is another possible plan.

    It comes up saying windows cannot read from this file type or something like that.

    I think, as long as you have paid and own the game fully, you should be allowed to do what ever you want with it. if you want to back it up and play without the cd, you should be allowed to. its just my way of thinking.
