Hi, there: I need help. After updating my COD to 1.5, I can't start the single player mode. It complaint that it can't read the CD. The multiple mode runs fine. The CD is in the CD drive. The autorun program can even run. But when I click the "Single Player Mode" button, it will complaint that it can't read the CD and I need put the right CD in. Can anybody tell me what's the problem? It is supposed to happen after update? I think that when I update it to 1.4, it runs fine too (both SP mode and MP mode). Thanks!

No it isn't supposed to happen after apallying a patch. There are several possible reasons for this problem. First is that the CD might be dirty, and you need to clean it. Second is that your laser head on your CD ROM (or DVD drive) might be dirty. Give it a clean with a head cleaner. Thirdly, that the sp shortcut might be corrupt. Delete it and replace it. But I suspect that the real reason is that a pk3 file is damaged. As tough as it sounds, a reinstall will almost certainly do it. See any of the posts in the last few days to find out how to do it successfully. Any probs just post back.

Check that the cd is clean and the cd /dvd drive is clean too, or you could try the cd's in another drive. As it could mean that the cd or the drive that you have the game in could be dirty.
