Installed a patch and now the game wont work.

I need some help here from anyone that can. I haven't played 2142 in quite some time so I went to play it and the game said I had to install a patch. This is when things stopped working. After running the patch I get the following error message.
I have tried several patches and still get the same thing. Is there just bad patches out there? Any help is greatly appreciated. *******NOTES******* YES, I own the game. YES, The CD is in the drive. NO, I am not using no cd software. YES, I tried the ea downloader patch. YES, I tried the XFIRE Patch as well.

    I tried both of those suggestions and I am still having the same problem.

    *****UPDATE****
    I copied a known working directory from another computer to mine and I still got the same message.

    This leads me to believe there is some strange hardware issue with my rig or something.

    I really do not know, It is the one that came with my computer. Its a newer Dell XPS though. I do have another one that I can try it with. I will re-install the game on a different drive and see what happens.

    Thanks for the suggestion. =)

    EDIT!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Never mind, my board is only set up for sata drives...I cannot check another one because it is IDE. I guess I will just have to deal with out the game.

    Thanks for everyones suggestions and ideas though.
