I'm running into the same problem for the one that came out in '04. I've done everything I can to get it to work, installed it even. Still nothing. Valve, Could you help please?

the format of the cd keys is different in the steam version. the retail cd keys simply don't work. this page lists the games that can be activated on steam using a retail cd key:

if you're getting CD key errors and you also bought Resurrection of Evil, you have to run both of them once before Doom 3 will work. i'm not sure why.

Thanks, already solved the problem. I had to put Doom 3 key AND Ressurection of Evil Key too.
