Anyone else have this happen?? I put the DVD in my DVD-Ram (burner) and after 20 min. it was about 25% loaded. I figured it would take 1.5 to 1.75 hours to install!!. I canceled the install and moved the DVD to my DVD-Rom drive...oh much much better. Was playing in 30 min. My PC is older but I don't think that matters to much on the install time. Must be a ton of data.

PC:
Athlon 64 3500+ (single core)
ATI HD 3650 (nothing great be cheap)
16X DVD
250 gig. 7200rpm SATA

Just played through the beginning trial. More tonight!

The install seemed considerably long. However, I can play TR UW on high settings so I'm good. :D

I have the same problem. I only have 1 DVD-RAM burner. Takes a while to install but the game works fine.

Well, we are talking about copying 7+ GB of data, that's gotta take some more time than usual. : )

Still in ray50's case the drive he was using was acting up.
