I purchased a legit, real copy of Fifa 13 and have tried to install it via the DVD.
Origin popped up and I proceeded to install it. After updating it and the application mentioning I must re-open Origin to continue after the update I did as such.
Now Origin is running however I cannot open it, it doesnt seem to be doing anything and Fifa 13 is not installed?
Why can I not install Fifa 13 and what on earth is this Origin nonsense doing?
I can't be sure but it seems to be using my bandwidth as my Internet connection seems slow now that it is running, however I cannot even open the application? If I right click on the System tray Origin icon the "Open Origin" icon is greyed out and all I can do is close it.
PLEASE can somebody tell me how the hell you install FIFA these days!
I'm exceptionally frustrated and dissapointed with EA after this, probably the last title I'll buy from them.
Solved! Go to Solution.

First of all, reinstall Origin, something is faulty and causing it to crash on open.
Next, redeem the CD Serial Key in Origin by going to the top left of the client, Origin --> Redeem Product Code and enter your serial key there.
You can install from the disc but I'd personally advise installing from the internet, that is if your download limit per month allows it. I mean there's a 200MB patch released yesterday for starters anyway.

Basically, you'd need a disk driver emulator such as Dameon Tools lite, and an .iso image creator.
Then you'd copy disk contents on usb driver, make them into a .iso file, and Daemon Tools can mount it as a virtual drive. The issue is it rarely works for legit games as there's hidden information on the disk that won't copy over. It's best to do it through Origin imo.
