I've come to reinstall my copy, but I've lost the case which has the serial no.
Can anyone help

well there are ways of finding the serial for games like these....

is it format then re-install because if so you may be in troule. But if it is just just fresh re-install when you have got rid of it before, you may be able to go to the registry and find the serial you used before.

Let me know a bit more and i and many others could help!

Have just installed XP. Intended to be dual boot with 98SE but it didn't let me do another partition, so it will be a clean install onto XP

sorry went to bedto get ready for work......


on the CD there is probably a way of finding a serial number that will allow you to prove to EA that you own a legitimate copy. Then to ring up EA and say you have lost the serial can you please give me a new one!

Well blow me down I've just gone and found the darn box!
After going through the rigmarol of emailing EA a photo of the CD. Nevermind now I have a spare serial number!
BIG thanks to those who helped

Quick suggestion, write the CD-Key on bits of paper and hide them all over the house, If you loose the bits of paper it won't matter cos after a few weeks you will prob remember it! I had to do that with my CD-Key for win2k :-)
