Hello ^^

A few days ago i baught BF2142, and when i tryed putting it in my CD drive, all it does is spin and make bad sounding noises (i'm afraid to let it stay in there TOO long, due to it sounds like it's scratching the CD, but when you look at the CD afterwards it's perfectly fine)

Also, when i put the CD in my computer lags a LOT, and when i go to 'My Computer' and, for example, right click on my CD drive, it sits there as if it's frozen, still making the noises, until i take out the CD.

Can somone please help shine some light on this situation? :)

Edit: By the way, i got the demo working today just fine.

Thanks, --Erixx

Is it a CD drive or a DVD drive? The disk will only work in a DVD drive, as with all new games.

The demo is working because it is not Disc based, so it is most likely a problem with the drive rather than the game.

I tried it in another computer downstairs which i THINK is a DVD drive, and it just sits there doing nothing, doesn't even spin >.<

Edit: Went doenstairs, grabbed the portable DVD drive, plugged it in, threw in BF2142, and tadah, started working ^^
