Hi everybody, I just got the cd version of HL2, i put the first cd in my 8790 and it starts making these horrible clunking sounds. It eventually slows down then completly stops, causing all data trans to obviously stop. I put it in my desktop and it worked perfectly. My suspicion is that on only the first HL2 cd, the center see through part is like a milimeter deeper, so it is hitting something. Every other cd is normal, and i returned it to Fry's and got another cd and it had the same exact problem. I couldn't install it on my 8790 w/ the original cd, so i had to go to my desktop to make a image of it and put it on a cd, i use that cd in my 8790 and it installs perfectly. Also, because it is a burnt copy, it won't get passed the cd check, i've used a no cd, but i don't want to risk losing my account on steam, has anyone else had this problem?
