I'm just checking to see if this isn't just me. When I try to start BFV with the wrong cd in the tray, it won't start, which is fine. After that, when I do put the right cd in, IT STILL WON't START, which sucks!!! I have to restart my computer to get it to work?! Is this jsut me, because I thought it was a fluke, but it is repeatable everytime.

I tried to duplicate your problem, but mine works fine. I keep disk3 for BFV in the drive and have no issues. I did try it with disk1 and still had no troubles. What disk do you keep in the drive?

I really think this CD must be in the drive to play the game is total CRAP! I can see for single player, but NOT multiplayer. so damn annoying :uhoh:

Then a lot of games are crap ;)

I've never encountered that problem either, I can put whichever CD in and it plays fine. My one gripe is the CD2 is in a very awkward case. When I try to take it out I always feel like it's going to break or scratch.

I don't think thats totaly true, take Planetside for example, now while you do have to have an account to play it online, you don't need any of the CD's in the CD tray to play it ;)

I had this problem, seemed that I had a folder in my BFV folder that wasn't supposed to be there and a map or a mod had put it there. You might want to check on that. Most notably in your levels folder. -DigitalDeath

I've use all three CD's at one time or another, had problems with the second one being read both during istallation and game playing, poping and out fixes the problem, other then that no issues really.
