When i'm starting BF it says "Insert the correct CDROM", first when i got this message, i thought that i hade inserted the wrong CDROM. But then i changed the CDROM to the other, the same message comes up. I don't get this.

My system: 2.53 GHZ P4, 512 MB DDR RAM 333 MHz, 111 GB 7200 RPM HDD, GeForce4 Ti 4600 128 MB, SoundBlaster audigy, direcX 8.1

we bought this PC for like a month ago so the software version's should be pretty much up to date.

please help me

Are you sure you have the retail version of BF1942? Sounds like a copied cd to me.

It might be a damaged exe file, have you patched to 1.2 as this replaces the original exe.

Reinstall and update to 1.1 first and see if that helps. If it does re try 1.2 if that ****s up use the exe from 1.1 (which u backed up before installing 1,2)

Failing that contact EA explaining the problem.. U can register online (US only) for tech support..

Hi ZaaP,

Sounds like another prob with the copy protection or something. Could be your CD ROM drive doesn't like it and can't read it properly. If all else fails you could download the No-CD patch (just don't tell anybody I told you :lol: )

Good Luck
