I am having trouble with my CD drive.I keep a disk in there that is a game i play all of the time.I decided to play the game one day and clicked on the desktop icon but it said i needed to insert the disk which it was already in.I took the disk out and put it back in but the cd drive only sped up a little(not like if it was reading it like usual).I looked in "My Computer" where it usually shows it as being in there but it doesnt show it as being in the disk drive.Can someone please help.

Have you made any changes to the system recently? Does this only happen with the game CD or all CD's? Also, will a moderator please move this topic to the hardware section? :whistling:
