MW2 and Steam.. Well Mainly Steam

Long story short... did a fresh install of XP yesterday and reinstalled steam.

I only play COD6 through steam but it has disappeared! I thought steam keeps the games on your ACCOUNT not your PC?

Anyway, since its not there i went to install COD6 from disc again. However, Steam says its already registered the CD-Key before (which it had) so it WONT let me install it again!! WTF!!!

Im seriously f*^&ed off!

Anyone else had this problem? Any reasons why this has happened?

To be honest it looks like im going to have to go out and buy it again

Send a e-mail to steam about the problem and I'm sure they'll sort it.

I think there may be an install limit..

Your right it should keep them on your account. I did an install of Windows 7 Pro x64 to get rid of my Vista and then had to install my steam games again, but in my case they were all there and I was able to use the disk for Modern Warfare 2.

I had a look here and Valve seems to think that if one or two games are missing its a problem with some ports being block on your firewall/router.

Not sure if that would affect it much but they reckon it does so I'd try that before resorting to another £35 out your pocket!
That's how we roll in the shire.
