Just wondering whether to waste my time trying to get replacement software due to a damaged disc...
I have flight simulator 2000 pro and the second cd with all the scenery files has a big chip out of the top of it..

Do Microsoft replace damaged discs if I have a licenced copy of their software?

Or does anyone know if you can download the scenery files from anywhere (legally)

Yip... Microsoft wanted to charge me $20 just for the 1xCD i needed...

My solution... I went to Cash Converters and bought a near new copy with all three CD's and the manual for $15

Wow I can't believe they have stock to replace your disc.  Not bad Microsoft:)
