COD2_Error_Message.jpg

This Error message appears after trying to run Call of Duty 2 Single player, this only occurs when trying to run single player as multiplayer works fine.

I've completed COD2 a few times but then i upgraded (downgraded :whistling:) my pc to Vista 32-Bit, after about a month i felt like playing COD2 single player again but i can't because of the said error message

This isn't a hardware problem as i've got an AMD AM2 X2 5200+ and 8800gtx

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

2 - You get disk read errors or insert CD/DVD error messages when you try and run the game.

This can be caused by CD/DVD cloning software such as Alcohol 120%, Clone CD/DVD, Daemon tools etc.
Uninstall the cloning software or disable emulation in the cloning software and try again.

If that doesn't work try setting the transfer mode of the CD/DVD drive PIO only mode.

oops. I didn't catch that you were running vista, otherwise that would have been my first suggestion. Glad you got it sorted out.
