Games don't work after cloning old HDD to a new Hdd

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
HI, so I was running out of space on my old 500gb wd blue so I went out and bought a new hard drive (seagate 1tb barracuda) When I got home I cloned my old hdd using reflect. Now when I try to open open bf4 for example it tells me I need to re-download the game. My storage is setup as a 120gb ssd for os and programs and then a secondary hdd for games, movies and pictures etc. Thanks in advance, Tillmander

Never mind I solved it. When I cloned the new hdd it got assigned a different drive letter so programs couldn't find what they needed. I changed it to what the old one was and now its all good. biggrin.gif

OK turns out all isn't good. All games I have tried open and work just like they should except for bf4 which I really want to play. When I open it in battlelog of whatever it's called when I try to launch the game it says "could not verify the game" Would like help soon, will +rep for helpful answers.

Probably won't help but have you tried right clicking BF4 in your Origin library and doing a "repair install"?

I have but then I have to re-download the entire game which with my internet will take a long time so I would rather do that as a last resort. It would take like 15 hours plus then everything I do would be super slow

Looks like you may need to repair the game unfortunately. BUT BEFORE YOU DO THIS, try this, If you're attempting to run battlelog off chrome, try attempting it with internet explorer and see if it works.

Not directly related to verifying the game but I have solved a connection issue in the past by going the BF4 install location and running 'pbsvc' which is PunkBuster and then Install/Re-Install PunkBuster Service. It won't download anything sizeable.

Also in the past after installing the web plug-in I've had to enable it i.e. chrome://plugins/ just the IE equivalent.
