So I noticed Dirt 2 was ready to play, in Steam today. Registered my copy in Steam like everyone else who bought a 58xx card. So I launch the game, and it prompts me to sign into Windows Live Games so my game progress can be saved. Didn't have a Windows Live account, so I created one. I then sign in and it asks for the serial number of the game I'm trying to play. I enter my Dirt 2 serial #, and it has the nerve to tell me that it's not a valid serial Number, to please enter a valid product key. I tried 5 times now. It won't sign in so I can play. Why is it denying my AUTHENTIC, VALID serial # that came with my 5870?





EDIT: And for any of you who might be doubting whether I'm using an authentic key, here's proof:

Figured out my issue....I was inputting the coupon code serial # instead of the Steam serial # when prompted at the game for windows live sign in. I guess that's user error? Anyway, it works now.

Not a fan of games for windows. I guess I'm showing my age. I miss the old days.

Thats because you aren't using the right email. I had this problem at first as well. But then i got the right email and it worked perfectly. I used the same one as my xbox live email if that helps any.

Ok, got it working. What Maestro73 said is how you do it. Evidently, the serial # on the voucher card that comes with your 58xx is not the serial you're supposed to be entering in Windows Live Games. Gee, would it have killed them to include how to do it
. So, to reiterate: open Steam, My Games, right-click DiRT 2, then hit 'View Game CD', and viola -- that's the serial you enter. It's different than the one on the voucher card. Go figure.

Great thanks! Do you know which e-mail address and password you are supposed to input for Windows game live? What I mean is are you supposed to use an existing e-mail account from lets say hotmail or make up a new one?

The email was correct all along but I am trying the different code thing right now.

Think Steam even tells you the CD-Key in a pop-up window when you start the game.
