**** please help fast guys.I bought the orange box for 50 euros and i have no idea how to install them.I put the CD and i install steam and log in to my account.Then i active the Orange Box with my activation key.And becouse steam was in drive C: i didnt had space to insall the whole orange box.So i exit and i reinstall steam in drive D:.Now all the games from the orange box are in "My Games" and i need to download them first so i can install them play??

Also there were 2 disks in the orange box.The first was Steam but the other one has nothing exept few files named: "The Orange Box Retail_disk2.sim" 2 3 4 " etc.

that's because your steam client has reassigned the "my games" folder to the new drive, but your old games are still on the old drive. if they are still there, simply copy/paste them. if they aren't there, they were deleted when you uninstalled steam, and you'll have to redownload them.

but since they were registered, you can do that as often as you need.

Reccomend you just activate it with the cdkey and download off steam. Should circumvent your cd problems.

you could use a friends computer and login with your steam account there to register those games from cd2 with your account (so back at home you can download them through steam)

Just an idea though.. I don't have the orange box T_T
