hi!

I'm pretty pissed right now...
I don't know how it happened but it did xD
I want to play Battlefield 1942 (I'm sooo bored)
but my crappy comp doesn't want to copy a file names data2 from the first CD.
Would anyone be so kind and upload just that file somewhere for me? xD
(I have copied every file...but this one -.- )
please?

You can't install from pc, the pc has to think it's on a cd.
If you're going to install it from the pc you need to use a virtual cd drive.

But my comp can't read that file from the CD.

This man speaketh true.

.cab files are generally quite big too.

Go download the game from a torrent page, then mount the CD's image using Daemon Tools, install, and then play as normal.

And in the future, make sure CDs stay in their protective casing to avoid such scratches, smudges, and surface imperfections.

And yes, the data.cab files contain all of the info on art, programming, physics, and so forth... so it's basically the MEAT of the game (I'm guessing there's a scratch on your CD somewhere within the 50% of the surface area that this file would cover)

I wouldn't trust a UGer to send me a cab file without any additional crap...as the guy above said torrent+daemon tools is the way.
