Spore seems to have some pretty stringent system requirements especially when it comes to the video card.
Are you sure your system meets these specs?

Have you had anyo other copies of spore installed on that machine (or the creature creator) before?

Spore requires at least the following:
FOR WINDOWS XP
* 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
* 512 MB RAM
* A 128 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
* The latest version of DirectX 9.0c
* Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1
* At least 4 GB of hard drive space, with at least 1 GB
additional space for creations
Does you machine meet with these ?
In the event there was not sufficient support you would get an error message telling you just what was lacking.
If there is no reponse from the drives or system it would seem likely you have a bad disc, or your DVD drive itself is having problems maybe with the DRM. It seems odd that 2 DVD drives should just seize up.

Question: The requirement says Windows Service Pack 1. Does that mean 1 and greater? Because I have service pack 2.

NegaNova - Yes, it means Service Pack 1 or higher.
