:confused: i install the 3.7 mod the other day with alot of problems but finally got it to go in..then i installed the BOB and OMG texture packs and they made my game lag terribly so i uninstalled the whole game(tryed uninstalling tex pack but didn't work)..so uninstalled everything..now after full re-install (1.2 update installed also)i go through the extract to main folder then go and install and at the end it says insert disc 1 so i put disc 1 in and the brown play/run server window comes up and then it just sits there.......then i cancel out of everything and go through extract and install process with disc 1 in the drive and it still says insert disc 1..i eject and close the cd drive and it still does nothing (brown window)...HELP...:uhm:

Hi greenbud,

When you uninstall go and delete the game folder from your hard drive, there are probably still files in there that are interfering with your reinstall.

Good luck

Have you tried restarting the puter with the disc in the drive. For some reason mine won't recognise the CD if I insert it only when I start the game, insert the CD then and it just keeps asking for CD, but if I leave it in the drive and restart PC it will always pick it up. Otherwise you may have to try (quietly now) the no CD Patch, just don't tell anyone you heard it from me.

Good luck

tryed total reinstall again (deleted all files) and still same thing..asks for disc 1 in the box it says c/program files/battlefield.......tryed shutting down and going through reinstall but everytime it asks for disc 1 .....when i hit ok it says this file cannot be opened..i had this installed the other day but had to uninstall and had a hard time getting it to work then...its getting to the point of saying the hell with this mod and all the rest they come out with if they have as many problems as the game does...you have to be a computer wizz to figure half this crap out...merciless has to relize that not everybody knows about computers and when you get something and it gives you more hassle than joy ,screw it they can have their mods......

if you have the window open up asking for the cd 1 heres the fix...first i'm using wimrar to extract the files,,,create a folder on your desktop and extract the files there...the go into the folder and install from there with disc 1 in the cd drive and it goes right in easy...i sure wish someone could havetold me that sooner...:rock: :dance:

Glad you got it working, but how on earth did you come up with that fix! That's the strangest thing I've heard in ages. :lol:
