    The issue can be related to Steam setup if your internet connection is working properly. Check that first that your internet connection is stable. If yes then fixing Steam will be first thing you will have to do. Restarting and sometime Re-installing fixes the issue. Also check that you does not have high latency while connecting. You need to free up maximum bandwidth before making a stable connection to the game server.

    Re: Black Ops Server disconnected - Steam Connect Failed

    In my case I had added the Steam under my Firewalls Exception list. I was irritated with that pop on windows which ask you for block or unblock applications. After unblocking the Windows 7 ring keeps moving showing nothing after that. I had first ended the current process from Task Manager and then relaunched steam. It connected successfully but due to heavy load on server the connection dropped down.

    Re: Black Ops Server disconnected - Steam Connect Failed

    I also have exactly the same problem - have had the game for 2 weeks now and I still can't play online. I've tried pretty much everything.

    Every time I try and connect to a server (with good ping) it kicks me after a short while and says "Server disconnected - Steam connect failed."

    Does anyone know how to fix this?????

    Very irritating.

    Well i haven't faced this issue on my system , hence not sure about the problem and solution. Anyways, what i can suggest you is just go through this Call Of Duty Black Ops Troubleshooting Guide. hope this will help you for sure.

    When I check the validation log in program files it says that one file failed to validate:

    "Validation failure: c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\call of duty black ops\BlackOpsMP.exe"

    What does this mean? Can it be the cause of my errors and how do I fix it?

    I think this really is what's causing all the problems. This is so irritating.

    Hi Bl1zz4rd,

    Have you tried updating your drivers and have also checked whether the firewall isnt blocking the game/steam, and also check windows defender if you have one. And also try to run the game as a adminstator. As it is a Steam error, try to exit steam, go to steam folder, delete clientregistry.blob, open steam (it will force update) - this may solve the problem.

    Happy Re: Black Ops Server disconnected - Steam Connect Failed

    MY GAME WORKS NOW!!! i port forwarded TCP to 3074 and UDP 3074, and if your router dont have TCP and UDP you just need to port forward and select no option just ask me if you are confused

    Re: Black Ops Server disconnected - Steam Connect Failed

    I have all the ports forwarded that are supposedly necessary - ones for Black Ops specifically and others for steam. Nothing seems to help with the error.

    Also, there seems to be a patch that constantly downloads, but won't install properly. I have tried re-installing both the game and steam already as well.

    Do you have the legal copy of the game? If not then you will have to buy the legal copy of that. Other than this if you are having the legal copy of the game then you can try to disable the Steam Cloud for Black Ops. One more thing that you can try is to disable the antivirus in your computer temporarily and see if you are again getting the same.
