    If you got it retail, try to take it back for exchange as defective- they should do that, assuming they have more on hand.

    I had a similar problem a few months ago. I bought a copy of Battlefield 2 from Wal-Mart and when I got home and opened it up, imagine my disappointment when I found Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for the PS2 in it. No one could figure out how the hell that got in there, since the two games aren't related in any respect. I took it back and the clerk told me he had 5 other customers with the same problem. Got my new copy and all was good. I got lucky, too. I originally bought the CD version of BF2, but they gave me the DVD version when I exchanged it. At that time, the DVD was $15 bucks more than the CD :) .

    I think his problem is he bought it in the US, but didn't find the problem until he got home. Kinda hard to go back to the retailer if that's the case.

    Where did you get the copy? Maybe you could warn other gamers.

    YUP!!! Right O! I've just came back from a 2 week business trip from the US and now back in Australia. Good to be home after all being locked up in conference rooms for days. But once i was on the plane, i am happy not only because my trip was successful but i can have some time to peel open the Civ4 packaging. Great stuff to read and all but once home... i can't play or install.... and then.. HEY!... why is there 2 of the same disk?

    So my situation is:
    1) i can't/won't fly back to the US.
    2) it wouldn't be worth it to send back my entire game to US.

    So, who do i write to? Any suggestions to my problem? Thanks guys...

    maybe you could use emule or another service to download the disc you need to install and play. This is not piracy since you paid for the game and should have the right to actually do that.

    If got this problem, call up the store you got it from. Chances are, you're not the only one that had that problem with version from that store (it seemed to have been a bad batch that was sent to my store). Since it is a defective product, they should swap it for you. They were out of the Special Editions at the store I was at, but the fellow there was nice enough to just pull the Play disc out of a normal edition and then do a normal exchange, leaving me with my original special edition, but with the proper discs. Ironically, I discovered that even after the switcheroo, I still need to use Disc 1 to play the game :)

    My disk 2 was defective. When I returned mine to EB Games, the manager
    said it was a known problem and that all the bonus editions picked up at
    her store had the same problem. When you get yours, look for crescent
    moon shaped melted spot on the rim. (The diameter is about 1/8 to 3/16th
    of an inch.

    Of course EBGames did not have any bonus editions left so at first they
    told me my only option was to return my bonus edition and get a regular
    one. However, when I suggested that I would just buy the regular
    edition and swap the dics myself and then return the regular edition with the
    bad one from my bonus one, she allowed me to just swap the discs.

    Hope this helps.

    Well, I didn't care to buy the expansion, but Firaxis is going to sue the distributor.
