For those of you who are PC gamers, you should wait on buying Modern Warfare 2 from the retailers. The PC version comes with 2 discs but it seems that only the actually game is working and not the extra content.
The first DVD/Disc is about 6.9 GB which seems to be the standard size for games that are coming out now. Unfortunately, each drive refuses to recognize the DVD. The DVD drives rattle around and you can hear the disc just clattering in the DVD Drive. Now when something like this happens, questions comes to mind and that is if this is a manufacturing defect and if there are other discs out there that have this problem.
A German game magazine reports the same problem. Every drive in their editorial office refuses the second DVD (they have seven PC's and four copies Modern Warfare 2 for PC). They say it’s definitly a production error.
This game is sounding less appealing than swine flu.

Hi ive had the same problems with the install, my good computer wont install or even read disk 2 but my IDE drive on my old computer does play MW2 both disks this is my second copy of the game, theres ways around it register your cd key on steam then download it, The only other way is to ask your friends (that have installed without problems) and see what dvd drive there using and go buy it......
Ive been a fan of the franchise since the very begining, activision has let us all down due to one error or another sad sad day for pc gamers when COD fails this hard.
