I've come to these forums because I really couldn't get any help from the official website for MTWII. This is a problem that I've had since the game came out, I ended up using a nodvd.exe file. I really hate to do that because I baught the game. Also there is a new patch out, 1.2 and I can't use it unless I can fix this issue.
The game will install from the dvd just fine, it will not play though. It pauses for a second, then tells me to put in the correct dvd/cd, there are only two and I've tried them both.
On a side note, my DVD burner will not burn DVDs, I do not know why and havn't been able to fix that issue. I've read where my mobo has problems with SATA DVD burners and that is what I purchased unfortunatly. I'm wondering if this isn't part of the problem.
I've also purchased another DVD player drive, I can get it to work, but it isn't hooked up ATM. My CD-burner and DVD-read drives both hook up through an IDE cable.
Any thoughts or ideas on this would be greatly apreciated.
