Well...changed out the Asus DVD ROM with a new Samsung DVD RW, used same SATA data and power cables. Still the same issue trying to run COD 4...."Inset Correct DVD ROM yada yada yada yada", I will be very hesitant of purchasing any products from Activision in the future.
The only things I haven't tried:
1. New SATA data cable
2. SATA Power cable is a 3x chain. presently power supplied by the last power plug at the end.
Don't know if swapping these out would make any difference?
COD WaR works fine, provided I don't try to run COD4 previously, if I do run COD4 previously, I will get the same error when trying to run COD WaR, unless I re-boot the System, then WaR will run fine off of the SATA Drive. Any other thoughts? ...."crack code eh?!
