Default Strange problem w/ CD-Rom

Howdy, I am just wondering if anyone can help me with a problem I have that absolutely no one I have spoken to has ever HEARD of. I had a cd-rom/burner that would do everything fine until I would try to play a game I installed. It would start up, read the disc, install and otherwise do everything perfectly. But when I try to PLAY the game it tells me it to insert the correct CD. I thought the thing had finally broken and bought a CD-Rom/Burner. But it does the EXACT same thing. I installed the drivers, it reads all discs perfectly, installs the games without any problems and is otherwise in perfect condition. but when I try to PLAY a game I have installed with it, ANY game, it says the disc is not in the drive. I know I have the proper disc in the drive, it is a retail version not a burned copy, I know it is installed correcly (cause like I said, everything else works) the ONLY thing it does is fail to read the disc when i want to PLAY a game that it has already installed. Does my computer just have a cruel sense of irony? Someone PLEASE help.

Hello wesker....

U shouldnt have bought a new CD-ROM , the old one were working perfectly . Ur problem is not with the drive , actually its with the game , u just need a crack for the game .

U said ur using a trial version NOT burned the normal thing that it plays without cracks.......but i got ur problem before with " Need for speed -High stakes " , it came with my VGA as a trial version...and suprise !!!!!! it didnt play without a crack ...dont ask me for the reason.

So simply try to find a crack for ur game...and more specifically there r ( NO-CD cracks )....make u play the game without the CD.

hope dat helps

But its not just the one game. It is ANY game I install. Unless there is some new mandatory protocol in the game industries that makes all the games need cracks to play them. What could be the problem!?
