yes i did. i thought i was on to something when i read that thread, but no luck. ive tried using 2 different bios', 2 different versions of evolutionx, tried unleashx, still the same on all of them.
the game saves and loads fine from the retail disk.  when the game is copied to the hard drive with complex tools and you go to save your profile, it freezes and you hear an infinite sound loop. [/edit] so i thought since this was the case i would just make a dvd backup of the game....it loads the game and gives me a bad disk error within the game, as if i had the retail game in and hit the eject button.
i can try making another copy of it, but i dont think this is the problem. there must be some sort of protection on these newer games, but i dont know what it is. why do ALL of my older games load/save fine but in this case burnout 3 does not. especially when i have burnout 2 right on the same hard drive working great.
if anyone can verify this with thier box it would be appreciated. ill post any findings i have here.
