Does your drive work with other games? It might be broken, If it is then you'll have to get a new one.

The best thing is to get a new drive somehow. It would fix, and so, Spore would work.

Get a new driver or just a brand new CD dive. It could also be your game if its really badly scratched.

If the DVD driver is not functioning properly you can probably get an external one much easily, whether you have a desktop or a laptop (although if you have the former a replacement would be more convenient).

You can also try contacting support and ask them for a digital download; include account info and serial numbers and explain your situation.

I actually don't know if this directly relates, but my disc isn't too badly scratched, but one of the scratches runs perpendicular, and the installation process stops before it finishes. I was wandering if it is possible to provide the correct information and download the game to my computer instead, because I'm really wanting to play again since I got a new computer.

I would love to continue playing Spore, but since I can't install the game again, I'm very disheartened.
I'm assuming I will need to attempt to repair the disc, buy a new copy of the game, or miss out on one of my favorite games.

Edit: My apoligies, I completely missed what SporeMasterSlime suggested because I had the message screen up while he was posting. I will attempt contacting support.
