Linking old EA games to Origin?
Another area where Steam outshines Origin is that you can enter valid, old CD keyas to add the games to your Steam library. I've tried doing the same to my copy of BF2 & 2142 in Origin but with no luck. Anyone know if it is possible to add old DVD copys of games into Origin?

You can add some, but EA haven't published a list saying which ones do/don't work.
It appears to be trial and error, I'm afraid.

Install BF2 and play it which should allow you to hit a page to enter your serial which linked my bf2 to origin.

I was trying this last night Rawns but eventually gave up, if you've got a solution please let me know was playing BF2 last night for a good while, a truly excellent game - and the multiplayer base is still huge!

BF2 is on steam, have you tried adding the key there?

No luck. Had a onlie chat with EA's support and got nowhere.
Tried Steam but says my key is invalid.
