I installed this game recently, it loaded, everything went normal except when I click on the icon, it tells me to insert the correct cd-rom, even when the cd-rom is in. If i try to start it from the cd drive, it tells me the same thing. Is this common and is there a common fix?
Oh yes, I have uninstalled then reinstalled a few times now, with defragging in between. This does nothing

if your drive is a burner, one possible reason is that it is incompatible with the copy protection on IL2 and cannot recognise your CD as a valid "key disk", its a known issue

Any way of fixing this?

If you have been using a dvd with starforce protection then perhaps you have big troubles as (in my opinion) it destroyed two of my burners.

The most obvious fix is a tabbo subject here even though you own the game.

The second simplest fix is to grab an old second hand or cheap CD or DVD reader and whack it in a second drive.
