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.

you can try looking at these options and see if this helps: https://activision.c..._guide_cd.php#3

If changing the dma doesn't help, then I would lead to a defective dvd drive. You might check with the drive manufacture's web site and see if there are any firmware updates.
