Hi, I've been having this problem with my dvd rom drive.
I can play some games fine, like Sims 2, but I can't play Sims 3 or Silent hill 4...

When I put the disk in the drive, it doesn't load. The green light stays on for a while, then disappears. When I go to My computer and double click on the drive it says "Please insert a disk into drive E" but it's in there...

I'm not sure about Sims 3, but I do know that my computer can handle Silent Hill 4, because I played it before (a downloaded version), so I don't think it's my graphic card.

This is my drive:
HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8162B
16X MAX SPEED

Do I need a better one?

First of all, see if those disks, which don't work on your computer will work on another computer.

When optical drive starts to be picky, in most cases, it means, it's dying, that's why I wanted you to check those disks in another computer.
