Re: is their any whay to shut up...
actually. most games nowadays just install the whole thing into ur hd, and you dont even need the cd rom INSIDE the drive physically to play...
i know this as a FACT because i own them.. for chaos theory, rainbow six 3, swat 4, battlefield 2, fear, warcraft 3, colin mcrae's 2005 rally racing and some more...
just when you start the game up , ie: load up the game.exe file, make sure you have ur cd in there.. so when the exe does it's regular cd drive checkup, it's aware the cd is in there.. then after you get into the game, like the menu or etc, take the cd out.. works like a charm. i have a 16x dvd burner.. so it's horrible with the cd in there.. okay hope that helps, peace
