I just bought DOOM3 for the Mac, and for the life of me I can't find the CD-Key. The manual says it is inside the jewel case; the read me file says it is on the back of the jewel case, but I don't see it in either location. I just paid $50 bucks for this game and I can't play it! Please help!

I don't know if the Mac version has a different layout, but my cd-key is where the fourth cd would be if there were a fourth CD.

If you can't find it, you should probably contact Activision costumer support. I don't have much else to suggest, I'm sorry.

If you open the CD case up, and go to the 4th CD space, there should be a series of numbers on a white piece of tape. Should say something like "Don't Lose This Number!" If it's not there check your manual, and if you still can't find it, call technical support. Hope this helps.

^ What he said. I got confused once as well with UT2003. I couldn't see the CD-key anywhere so I thought it wasn't there. So I went back to the shop and there we found out that it was behind the cd's. So take out the CD's, all of them, and see whether the code is behind it or not. If it really isn't there call technical support.
