Where did you buy it? Get a receipt from the seller. If you bought from an individual, you may have been given a worthless DVD.

I was a marine deployed to Japan about 4 months ago. I bought it from the electronics section from the local PX. And no Its not a cracked or hacked windows. It was a legit buy from my PX.
