Battlefield 2142 Problem..

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Yo Guys! I have bought original battlefield 2142 with original cd-key on it and have played it with DVD drive on it because you need DVDplayer inorder to run Battlefield and I heard that there are no No-CD Cracks and Mount Image in 2142.. The problem is I assemble a new PC without DVDdrive and only CDROMdrive and I cant get my DVDRom drive from that other PC because Im in different town which is too far.. I already have registered my copy of 2142 online and have played it before.. Is there anyway I can play 2142 without a DVDRom drive?? Ive heard from other post that you can play 2142 without cd, you just have to go to EA website and prompt your cd key and download installer which does not require a cd.. Help pls..

While I've never tried it myself, I believe that you should be able to download EA LINK and enter your serial. From what I've read, you'll need to actually go to the purchase page and enter your key there. I'm afraid that's about the extent of my knowledge on this one.

Good luck - frag ya soon!

I already have installed battlefield 2142 on this pc when I was able to borrow a DVD drive from someone but he took his DVD back because he needs it.. I also have update it to latest patch 1.25... The problem is I cant run it because I dont have DVD drive..

You can sir.

Download EA Link (just google it, its all over). Its like the STEAM for EA games. In there, look under the games tab for Battlefield 2142. Then, click BUY. When you are prompted for payment method, theres is credit card, paypal, or the third option is to enter a current CD key and download the game. You can enter the CD key from your game you bought and download the game through EA link legally. Then, you can play it right through EA link, no need for a DVD drive

Again, as Polo224 said, try looking around on EA-Link, as you should be able to register your CD key on there and download the game and install it. Then you will not need a CD key.

Also, try opening a trouble ticket with EA.

Thankyou for helping out Kopi.

I wonder if this binds the CD Key to that EA link account?

I think it binds the CD key to your account name...just like it does if you have Northern Strike downloaded or whatnot. But I'm probably wrong

I already tried it.. This is what I did:
1. I open EA Link Program
2. Click Game Store
3. Click Battlefield Buy It
4. Then you were asked if you buy it credit card, paypal or Prepaid Code Entry so I choose Prepaid Code Entry
5. I type my original cd-key in there

There was an error stating like this:

Oops, there was an error processing your information:
