Re: This Is nuts
HL2: Episode 1 and Sin: Episode 1 both can't be "explored" you say?
That's easy: you don't have a DVD drive.
Both games are distributed (via retail) on DVDs. THAT's why the drive lights up briefly but fails to continue as it can't understand what kind of disc it is! CD drives exibit such behavour when confronted with DVDs.
I guess all those little messages and sys requirements on game boxes are for decoration.
EDIT: For what it's worth, you can still use the discs if you do not wish to keep up to date with optical technology. Just enter the DVD-KEY you get with the game in Steam, and you can download the data instead of getting from the disc (assuming you're not on dial-up).
