the gal at ubi was cool and easy to
talk to. they'll send a replacment for 10
bucks in exchange for the broken pieces.
. her first question was "how fast
is your cd rom". turns out 52x is just to fast.
it would have been nice if ubi stated that
on the box. but, she's also going to e-mail
me a file for playing without the cd.
all in all,fair enough.

She is actually going to send you a 1C approved No CD crack file????? OMG. And all this hallabaloo over no cd cracks in the past. Why don't they jsut include a copy of it with each CD to solve this problem??

Ohh I know all about a no cd crack. I was jsut amazed that 1C might send one. After reading his update to the update I saw where they were not sending it.

A test was done to see at what RPM it would take for a CD to fly apart due to applied radial force. Seems that a wood workers router with 35,000+ rpm would just cause a CD to fragment.

You have one supped-up CD driver! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I'm loading the CD now, safety glasses anyone???

Surprised this thread hasn't been editted, locked, deleted, etc. for mentioning that which is not named.

On the original subject: Why haven't we gone to Z-rated disks from Goodyear?

10 bucks to replace a defective disk? Ubi should do it for free and probably offer to compensate you for damage to your rig.

Wonder how much a product recall would cost them?....after all there were 2 of them in one day....that we know about.
