Specs: Windows 27.07.2009
I bought black and white 2 and it worked fine. But my computer got wiped and now it doesn't work. It says something like your computer has not been modified and something about a I/O error. What does it mean and how do I fix it?

Can you tell me do you get this error when installing the game or running the game? I think it has something to do with Safedisc 4 which the game uses to stop people from using illegal copys. Or it can be to do with your cd/dvd drive.

I get this problem while installing the game. Every time I get to
the 4th disk; right when it gets to the end the error pops up.

Try following these instructions:


Access Denied installation error
If when you trying to install you game and it returns the error:

"Black and white 2 has failed to install. Your system has not been modified. Please re-run the installer to try again.
Error: Access is denied."

You need to do the following, Find a Hard Drive where you have at least 4GB of space free to copy over the 4 cd's of data.

Second make sure that still leaves you 4GB of room to install the game if you using the same hard drive to copy and install.

Make 1 Directory: (X: being the drive your using, C:\ being an example)

X:\BW2_CD (Copy the contents from CD1/2/3/4 here)

Example: C:\BW2_CD

Run Setup.exe from the folder once you have copied all 4 cds.

Note: you will still need CD1 in your CD/DVD Drive to play the game. and you can delete the folders you made with the copies once your install is complete, and now your playing


If you need any help doing this private me and I can talk you through it.
