I bought crysis about a month ago but i just got the upgrades to be able to play it, so i popped in the brand new disc, and my disc drive starts making all these strange clickety clack and weird bleeping noises when trying to read the disc. Well i just opened the package to the disc, so i know it can't be the disc. So, i have another dvd drive on hand and i pop that into the computer. Same noises. So i start to think that the disc is defective, and i go to Wal-Mart and exchange it for another copy. It does the exact same thing. What's up with this game? Anyone else have this problem before? The noises are loud. I worry about it tearing up my drive.

umm, have you ever installed stuff before on your computer drive before? noises and such are normal, and i get them when my drive is stressing to burn something or reading a game.

Don't listen to that reply, I know exactly what you're talking about, OP. Yeah, it does take a minute or two for the disc to be acknowledged, and during that time it makes some horrible grinding noises. If you search on Google, a lot of people have complained about it; the issue seems to be because of the way the dual layers of the DVD were bonded (take a look at that wavy effect when you hold it up to the sun). But I've had it spin in my desktop drive numerous times like that before, and both the media and the drive are doing just fine.

Crysis does that to my drive too.
