Installation Error: Insert New Media

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Every time I try to install Football Manager 2010 I get the error:

"Insert New Media"

Then below:

"Please insert FM 2009... or select 'browse' to locate it manually"

The error comes after i've run the cd either through autoplay or by running setup manually. I go through selecting yes to express install and to install from the DVD, not steam then it brings up the error above.

I've tried checking the registery (through regedit) and deleting any old FM 2009 files or FM2010 files (from the many installation attempts!).

I've tested to see if it matters what letter my CD-ROM drive - ie, if it has to be next up from the HD - but still nothing.

I even tried uninstalling my old FM 2009, then re-installing it - but when I tried this, it came up with the same 'Insert New Media' error as above!

Anyone know how to fix this? I've seen it on several forums online:

Any help would be grand!

Cheers

Bob

2nd link seems to offer a pirated version of the game, might be worth removing that link ;)

Have you tried installing FM with Steam not running (if you're using Steam) ?

Someone else had a similar problem and responded with

"Seems the installer did not like the fact I was doing an off-line install, whilst connected to the internet. Perhaps something that needs looking into?"

So it might be worth unplugging your ethernet cable to your router/modem and then installing FM.

That sounded promising but still didn't work. I've searched all over the place for solutions - there absolutely must be a way to fix this. I have a feeling it's something obvious or at least, not too complicated.

Any ideas? Or who would have the answers?
