When I go to install KOTOR it says:

Quote:
ERROR!

Uninstall encoutered an error and cannot proceed. Please contact technical support.
Why does the uninstall have a problem while I'm trying to install? :help:

I have no idea what you said. When talking about computers with me you need to use the most basic language possible.

I should probably mention the CD's are copies.

For some games it matters if the CD is the original one or a burned copy. For example, Warcraft III doesn't install for me when installed from burned CD's. Only from the original CD. It's a copy protection. Seems there's some information stored somewhere on this CD that cannot be accessed by browsing the directories or like that.
Could be that this is the matter in your case...

That's what I thought it could be too. Cause I bought the game installed it copied it then took the game back and got my $100 back. k:

But we then lent the copies to a friend of ours and he seemed to have gotten them to work. Are there patches for this copyright protection thing?

I hope this taught you to not pirate games anymore...
And I for my part won't help you with the patches, sorry. Because this patches are called cracks, and this is illegal. Now this topic is closed.
