I put the BF2 CD in the drive but nothing pops up. I have Vista Home Premium but I've checked on google "Battlefield 2 Vista" and all the sites said it will work. Can someone please tell me how to manually make the computer read the CD? Or to install it? Something along those lines.:bows:
Put the CD in, Right click on start, left click Explore, find your CD Drive (usually D: ). Left click that, then double click Autorun.

I found the D: drive but it only has restore on it the C: drive has (folders) Intel, Program Files, Users, Windows, and a white page that says BOOTSECT.BAK[COLOR=Black]
I have not found autorun [/COLOR]
Look in "Computer" and find your cd/dvd drive, when the battlefield disc is in it will change the icon of the drive to a red 2, that is what you right click on and do as above
I know that the number "2" should show up but it doesn't thats the problem i don't think the computer is even reading the disk.
Does the cd/dvd drive even show up in computer? Is the disc scratched? Are you using disc 1? What happens when you click on the drive where the "2" used to appear?
To the OP, whether or not it reads the DVD is irrelevent because you are wasting your time anyway, take it back because your video card won't play BF2, at all, ever, no matter what.
If you want to play BF2 you wil need to upgrade your vidcard first, then make sure you are actually using a DVD drive, as it may be only a CD drive which would explain why it doesn't show up, the D: drive is the recovery drive for your operating system, your cd or DVD will be named E: or higher, depending on if you have any flash memory readers and etc.
