BF2142 still trips me out, it is still telling me to insert disk and restart the app, even if I launch it from the disk. any thoughts on that one?

My problem is that I don't have sound in movies (Mirror's Edge, Legendary etc). I found that problem is probably Bink Video used now by many developers. Any ideas?

What did you do exactly as far as install method for each patch and final compatability settings? And do you have Norther Strike? I cannot get BF2142 to start no mater what I do. I can get the no CD thing if I run in XP compatability mode.

I neeeeeed this game to work or I am ditching Windows 7.
