Call of Duty 4 'Please insert the correct DVD-ROM

Post » Tue Jun 08, 2010 12:34 am

I just bought this game and keep getting an error to ' please insert the correct DVD-ROM, select OK and restart application'

I have a Pioneer BDC-202 drive, and have updated it to the latest firmware

Also have updated MB bios, and all updates I can find.

Does anyone have this DVD drive working with COD4???

Solution : instead of using the desktop shortcut, trying going through the start menu to launch Single Player..

I don't know if it matters, but I'm on Vista and do not need the dvd to be in the drive (for Single Player or Multi Player). I have a legitimate copy and no no-dvd (or cd) patch/crack. I've always wondered if everyone else had the same luck, but I guess not. Wonder WTF is the deal w/mine if yours is requiring the disc in the drive?

I tried to run from the program list - still gives the same error

I also tried to download the No-DVD patch, but this patch is only for [Multi] player mode. I tried to find one for single player mode, but could not find one. The two files are iw3mp (multi-player) and iw3sp (single player). If anyone knows where I can find the iw3sp patch I think that I would be set!

This is not happening while installing - just when I try to play the game.

Try one/all of these see if it helps:

* Hold down the left shift key when inserting the game disc if this problem is occuring on launch.
* Make sure you have 32 bit drivers for your CD-ROM drive.
* Set the CD-ROM cache size to zero.
* Change the DMA setting on the CD-ROM drive.
* Make sure the drive letters for the CD-ROM is set correctly.
* Make sure that the location for CD music to play is set correctly.
* Make sure your system can successfully play Audio CD's.
* Turn off Auto Insert Notification.
* If you have the CD burning software Alcohol 120% installed you need to turn off all of the emulation options.
1) Go to File > Options.
2) Click on Emulation in the menu to the left.
3) Uncheck all options in the window to the right.
* If you have CloneCD you need to turn off the Hide CDR media setting. This setting is accessable from the task tray icon for clone CD. Right-click on the icon and uncheck Hide CDR media.
* If you have an Nforce based motherboard go to http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp and get the latest Nforce drivers for your motherboard chipset.

I wish you were right but when you run this patch it opens multi player mode. Maybe that is why they have [MULTI] in the patch title!
