i'd recommend you to install a noCD patch...then you haven't got the prob with your CDs. but maybe performance will take disadvantage.

I have the exact same problem (message appears: please insert the correct CD-ROM). I have the original version (off course). I contacted EA. They told me that when installing and playing virusscanners should be off and that the newest graphics drivers should be installed. I did that, but just as I suspected it didn't work, it gave the same message. EA told me now that I should try installing the game on a different computer, if it then also doesn't work, I will have to send the game to EA and I will get a replacement (because then the CD-ROM is probably defect). My guess is that my (and your) CD-ROM is defect, because I haven't experencied any such problem.

Do you have a virtual drive running? If so, turn it off and try again.

Another thing is you might want to make sure its in your lowest logical drive, meaning the closest drive letter to A: I Saw somewhere that it doesn't like it when the cd is not the first CD drive

This is exactly what Secret Weapons did for me, and now BFV as well. I've unmounted all virtual drives, rebooted twice, tried all 3 cd's in both optical drives and played around with remaking the shortcuts! The only thing I havent done yet is trying to clone the cd and create a BFV virtual drive of its own. (cause I shouldnt have to!) BF installs and plays fine so maybe there is something to this bad cd thing? But Im skeptical. In the case of SW I just put the game on the shelf and never played it, but I'll damned if I'm not gonna at least try BFV.

Well its NOT the cd's. At least not in my case. Installed BFV to another machine that had a fresh windows xp install on it no problem and the game started fine. I swapped the drives between the two rigs as well to see if that was the problem and it still wont run on my gaming rig?

As you all well know I had the same problem, but I fixed it. I deinstalled a virtual drive (in my case clone CD) and then the game run (it has something to do with safedisc)(see also forum of official battlefield site).
