I purchased Battlefield 1942 The Complete Collection and loaded it onto my computer. Then after, I placed in the CD and tried to load the game up and it did nothing. The CD drive sounds like its loading it up, and the Battlefield logo square will come on the screen then dissapear and it stops. How can I fix this, the game and my computer drivers are up to date.

Can you launch the games from Programs/EAGames/Battlefield....Anthology?

I just recently got that collection to, and since installing it, my cd drive have been acting funny... it now has troubles opening but it reads discs fine. I wonder if their is a problem or something with them?

Have you tried just for the heck of it putting in another disc? Try the 5th one because 5-8 is battlefield vietnam, and this is a separate install.

I installed all but the VN stuff, and didn't have any problems with the first three parts. I did place shortcuts to the three WW2games on my desktop.
If push comes to shove, completely uninstall the entire game, and then re-install it.

Cheers,
John

Could the copy protection on the CD's be causing issues? I had a game whose protection was having a difficult time with my CD drive and would just stop working.

Oh ya, I also just remember there was a patch for the game on the ea site. Maybe downloading this patch will help. I think it's version 1.61.
