I install the game fine then when i try to run it i get the message "no disc inserted" it is of course since i just installed it :mad: and after that theres nothing i can do it's just stuffed, this has happened on another game i have on DVD and i can't find any solutions online please help :cya:
I should mention to those who might recognize me this error is on my mates machine not mine
Go into my computer>right click on the Cd w/the BF2 cd in it>select 'explore'> find the BF2 exe and launch it game.
See if there is any updated firmware for the DVD drive on the manufacturers website, the current firmware may not be compatible with the game copy protection.
Is this a copy of your game or is it HIS copy of the game? Be honest ...
this is his copy we have tryed swapping dvd drives and bf2 discs both work on another machine (mine) but not his, also this problem wasen't always the case after a windows re-install this error happend on Gun and BF2. we also have installed modern firmware with no results also the rclick and explore diden't succeed, thanks for the help so far but i still need answers i'm gonna explore online if i find any answers i'll let you guys know
ide error on the motherboard then i would think... set the dvd rom up as a slave on the same ide cable as your main hard drive and see if it works.
Barrett.50 also this problem wasen't always the case after a windows re-install this error happend on Gun and BF2.
Possibly a software conflict, some DVD ripping and burning software will cause this issue, if you have any such software running at startup (like Nero Incd, DragtoDisk etc) disable it and try again.
Just to tie up loose ends the problem was that we had lost the original mother board driver disc as soon as we found it and installed the right drivers all was good. thanks for the help though :bows:
