    There are reports on various web sites that the 'overburned' discs for kotor are notorious for not booting. Lucasarts apparently replaces quite a few after their tech support fails to fix the problem.



    Do some googling and see. You may have to ask for fresh copies.



    YMMV

    ive been hearing some things on various forums about something called a crack, or no dvd. what are these do you reccomend using them? where can I find some?

    No dvd cracks let you run the game without the DVD in the drive. I find them very handy as it's sometimes less noisy. It does mean doing a full install though so it will take up a lot of space. You get these cracks off P2P networks e.g limewire.



    I don't know if it will help here but it's probably worth a shot. I'd personnally return it. No way I'd pay that much for a game let alone a broken one.
