I believe I have had this problem before with BF2142, EA fixed it by giving me an downloaded version of the game as opposed to a DVD-ROM based version. From what i remember it was an issue related to DMA. Sonic has been removed from programs, which I believe is the source of the DLA. When i go into my drive properties i see no refrence to DMA at all. I believe this issue causes all of my DVD rom games, BF2 BF specialforces... and COD4, to not run. What is the source for this problem? I have a great service contract w/ dell but they seem to have no clue. I have been told before that i must be running a disc copying utility, which I am not. Any solutions or clues to find this [bleep] source of my frustrations?
