COD4 is fine when playing the cinematics but when playing in game it is buggy. Walls go missing and there are flashes of light, strange really.

BF2142 presents its own problem, the game is still telling me to insert the disk and restart the application. This happens when I launch from the desktop shortcut as well as when I launch directly from the cd.

Any ideas on how to fix the bugging in COD4? Also has anyone expierenced the disk problem I am having with 2142 or any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks =D
have all these games been updated??

Neg, I dont have any. Do you think if I were to get a drive emulating program I might be able to fix my problem? Or were you asking because you think that might have been the issue?

the only way i see it is that you click under compatability mode "change settings for all users"....
i think thats the only reason it should be grayed out...
