Call of Duty: Black Ops Error (Windows 7 x64)

Hello Internet,

I had problems playing my Call of Duty: Black Ops for the past weekend but I’ve since found a workaround for it.

My problem was it kept displaying File Write Error “Call of Duty: BlackOps couldn’t write a file. The hard drive is probably full” when my hard drive wasn’t full at all.

It is definitely a Windows 7 administration “problem”. After much anxiety and countless hours of tinkering with the game and Windows, I am pleased to let you know that I’ve managed to access the game today!

What I did was create a separate Windows 7 login account as a Basic User (do it in your UAC – Control Panel > User Accounts).

Login to the Basic account you’ve just created and launch the Steam Application by right clicking and then selecting “Run As Administrator”. I was prompted to enter the admin password and then it began…  [UPDATE: Go to the Steam folder (e.g. E:\Steam\SteamApps\common\call of duty black ops) and just double click on BlackOps – It took about 20 seconds to load on my computer]

Now back to the game!

Leave comments and I’ll try to help as much as I can.
