Basically my old hard drive is no longer being recognized by my computer, this drive had all my games on it and when I try to uninstall one particular game, it wont let me, problem is I want to install it on another drive.. how can i uninstall it when I no longer have access to that drive?

Just install it to the new drive, you don't need to uninstall it.

I cant, the installer wants me to uninstall first, like its functioning as an uninstaller and without access to the old drive, I cant play the game

Here's an idea: use ccleaner to just delete the install information and THEN reinstall it.

If you can't uninstall it then deleting the entry is probably the only way.

Cool... I haven't had to use that too many times but I figured it should do the trick :)
