Today I was trying to play a game of mine. It actually let me install the entire thing, but then won't let me play it. After a reboot, the drive occasionally reads the contents of the CD and is able to display the name (but not always). It will not play the game. And it won't eject, either.
My Dell has a slot-loaded drive, which means the standard paperclip-on-tray thing isn't applicable.
I repeatedly press the eject key and right-click eject, but this only causes the cd to chug, read the title, attempt to autoplay, and fail. Once it popped out and then sucked the CD back in before I could catch it.
Any advice? Is this a driver-type issue, or some serious hardware problem?
