When i tried to install call of duty, i tried to play it and it said 2 missing sound files, so i uninstalled and tried to reinstall. Now when i put in the call of duty disc, the only options are to either play single, multiplayer or uninstall, and i cant do any of these because i have no files from the program on my computer- and there is no "install" option. Can anyone help me?

are the steps to reduce resolution necessary? i have a very good setup, radeon 9800 xt, gig of ram, stuff like that, and plenty of h ard drive space (on drive D anyways)

 

i will try it right now though, thank you very much.

 

 

when i tried to do this it said "cannot copy pak1, invalid MS-DOS function"

 

 

i tried to isntall again by opening the setup on disc 1, and installed, and it still said 2 sound files are missing or in a bad format. :( I have tried rebooting, it doesnt work :(

Well if your disks are scratched and Activision is as crappy as EA about it then i say DL ISOs and just use your key. Should work just fine, Ive done this for a few games that have been scratchedup over the years and never had any issues. If you ahve problems finding them IM me on AIM tonight. I can't post here about such things (links to DL options), heck not really supposed to say to DL the ISOs :lol:, but obviously you have the game so you need to be able to play it :D I would start by e-mailing activision to see what their opinion is and se if they offer a free disk replacement.
