Why can't I get into a match?

  1. Whenever I go to the live lobby, I go through the normal process of choosing a game type and waiting to find a game. It will go through the 50 games but when it finds on it won't try to connect. Does anyone have any idea what is wrong?
    -NAT is open
    -says it is searching as a 50ms ping
    -strong connection
    -playing in team death match b/c it has the most players so it will have the most games
    -whenever I join with my friend I can get into a match with him fine but when I go solo it doesnt work
    -I have done nothing to my firewall or downloaded any updates/add ons
    ***I am finding matches but I can't get into them***

  2. Additional Details:
    I have the game downloaded on my hard drive. Would this change anything at all?

  1. the most likely thing (happened to me) is that the disc cracked. this is very common with mw2 (i have a sneaking suspiscion they did it on purpose to get the game bought twice with the same person) as the case button is difficult to press in do you end up cracking the disc. The solution i used was to put it in a game case i never use and put that game in the mw2 case. You can switch the picture if you want.

  3. Iv had that problem before because the disk was just wore out like i had it for about 3 years and it was all messed up and it worked but would'nt let me play so get a new disk or it might be a server problem like Call of duty WOW they just don't keep up and check that server much anymore
