so sometimes it'll ask you for serial # again, and when you put it in, it'll say "in use"? that's a server issue?

i thought it had something to do with me just plug n play'ing the drive on another rig
Ya it had me wondering too, I couldn't figure it out so I gave up and tried again an hour or so later and it was working again. Like I said in what I edited in my earlier post it stems from the same ea server issues that cause your rank to reset to 1 for awhile.

Dunno if you should be worried or not, I don't remember if I had to bind my EA account to my BC2 account, but I think they're supposed to be automatically bound if it's the same email.

Guess you should wait as others have mentioned, and send a ticket.

so when i login, it asks me to accept the ToS, like it's a new account or something, then i put in the serial and it says in use

i thought it was suppose to be connected to steam.. i can see my bfbc2 cd key from steam..

You are still logging into an ea account, it doesn't have any tie to steam aside from you having bought it from them. It's fundamentally the same issue as when it doesn't retrieve your rank except it takes it a step further and doesn't even realize it has the game connected to it. The ea login servers are terrible for bc2.

Oh man I had this SAME issue with the same game a few months ago. I forgot what I did, but I didnt contact anyone, neither EA or Steam. I was freaking out because it kept saying it was in use but it was the one it GAVE ME TO USE GRRR. So I feel your pain, but keep playin with it, I am sure you will get it to work like I did.
