Whenever I try to join a multiplayer game my COD UO errors out and says hundreds of sound files aren't installed or corrupted. Does anyone know why this happens?

Another person with the same problem, I have that error too!
Check out this thread:
That makes three of us now, I'm beginning to think there's a pattern and suspect service pack 2. Bruce, do you have service pack 2 installed?
Activision have said that you need to do the following:
Uninstall the game, delete the game folder Call of Duty, and then reinstall the game and the expansion pack. Make sure that you do not install any third party maps/mods/skins of any type. Then try the game again.
I've done that a thousand times, but still nothing. At first, I thought it was because my mate scatched my disc 2, but after I browsed the web and gaming forums loads of people have the exact same problem.
I'll try and re-install everything again, and update my drivers...again. Thanks for the advice, though I dont think it'll work :(
I've had a look on the web for ya guys, this is what I've found lol
I had the EXACT same problem. THIS FIXES IT!!! SPREAD THE WORD! Copy the PAK files from disc 2 to your PC. 1) Place Call of Duty disc 2 in the CD-ROM drive. 2) Open My Computer. 3) Right-click on the Call of Duty CD and select Open. 4) Open the Setup folder on the CD. 5) Open My Computer again. 6) Open the Call of Duty folder on your hard drive, C:\Program Files\Call of Duty. 7) Copy the MAIN folder from the CD-ROM drive (may have to go into "data" folder) into the Call of Duty folder. 8) If prompted to overwrite files, do so.
I dont if this will work for UO, but the pak files for UO are in:
Disc 1 = Setup\Data\uo Disc 2 = Setup\Data\uo
So if you've installed the game and having problems, just copy the pak files over from the cdroms to the call of duty/main/uo folder. This should fix your problem.
Okay I've tried that a couple times but now I'm getting a fault in copying the files to the main directory. It says "Cannot copy pak1: Data error (cyclic redundancy check). I did notice in the process that there is a pk1.pk3 file on the 2nd CD that is not in the Main directory in the COD directory. That is the one I suspect is missing but when I try to copy it in it gives me the previous fault and won't copy. Anyone have a remedy?
No! I'm Spamacus!

Usually when you get a cyclic redundancy check error it means that the disk is corrupt. :uhm:
This is strange, Bruce I have the same problem. I've reinstalled everything, deleted the directory and updated all of my drivers, but to no success - it's still the same. I've also tried the trick Highroids suggested by I too get the cyclic redundancy check error.
I noticed before I uninstalled that the pak1.pak3 file was missing, after a re-install I found that the same file is there, but instead of it being close to 161mb it's close to 140mb instead.
Riles, I dont know how my disk could of been corrupt. I've had the same Call of Duty since the day it came out, and it worked fine. The last time I played it was before Service Pack 2 was installed and my mate borrowed it too, it has minor scratches, but nothing big.
In this thread I describe how I think it could be Service Pack 2:
I dont think it's the scratches causing the 'corrupt or missing' files because the rest of the install worked fine, if it is it looks like I'll have to buy a new copy of Call of Duty.
I'm getting very desperate here, the only other thing I could suggest is if someone made the missing or corrupt file (pak1.pak3 in my case) downloadable from another person who has a copy of Call of Duty - if that's even legal.
Thanks for the help so far guys.
Well if the pak files are missing and you cant copy the files over I would suggest contacting the shop where you bought it from for a replacement disc. If ou cant do that contact activision and ask them if you can have a replacement disc as you may have to send your disc in for it to be replaced.
Hope this helps.
