Janice, if you say the only change on your system was the installation of this game you may want to start troubleshooting by uninstalling your beloved game and retest playing cd/dvd.
if it works... your game may have been poorly made and may have affected the driver of your cd/dvd device.

is also possible your game may have come with other software (spyware/virus) that may have affected your computer. Uninstall game and run updated antivirus and antimalware software. you may want to reconsider the source of your games.

your game may have also come with other software to play cd/dvds that may have been installed and selected to be the default player of cd's and dvd's and may require especific configuration to play the cds or dvds.
to change the default program that plays dvd or cd.. go into my computer>tools>folder options>file type tab>select audio cd and click change under the detail section to change the program you open the file with. do the same for dvd.

if none of the above worked. try to revert your system to a previous date (when your devices were working) with system restore: (if using xp)
start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore.

Cannot get my dvd cd rom to play dvds or cds tried everything apart from taking the tower off model #a1310n Prod# el448aa-aba


If you cannot hear the disk spinning when you put the cd or DVD in you may have a broken CD/DVD drive, easily and cheaply replaceable for under $20 at any store (Recommended: Best Buy). Try putting your Windows Disc into the drive to see if it is only a problem with playing Media, or if it is a problem with the drive itself and go from there. Good luck!

I have a Sony Vaio desktop with XP. My DVD-CD


Have you tried burning a CD in the new drive? Because the drive is a DVD it will always be recognised as a DVD, but should work perfectly well with CDs both playing and recording.
