The game may not be a cd that is setup to auto-load.
Put the cd in, give about a minute and then go into My computer and where your cd-rom is in there it should show the cd loaded as it will have a name there of the cd. If it doesn't show something then the cd might be bad.
If it does show something then right click on the drive and choose open and then it will show you all the files on the cd, then choose setup to install the game.
Now back to the cd, if it doesn't show anything in my computer then try other cd's to make sure your cd-rom is still working cause if its not reading anything then your drive is bad and would need to be replaced.
Do this to be sure that your dvd drive is still being recognized by your laptop. Turn on your laptop and go into your BIOS. Once your in there look to see if its listed in there. If it is then you know for sure that the laptop is recognizing it properly and that its a windows 7 issue.
If the dvd is not recognized in the BIOS then what you need to do is with the power off. Take out the dvd drive completely and reseat it back into its slot. Then turn the laptop on, go back into the BIOS and see if its recognized in the BIOS now. If its still not recognized in the BIOS then that means the dvd drive is bad and would need to be replaced.
As far as drivers are concerned and that you verified that the dvd drive is recongized in the BIOS, you may not be able to get drivers because windows 7 is not out for the public yet and drivers may not be available, you can always check the manufacuter of your dvd drive and go to there website to get drivers but since windows 7 is not out yet to the public your chances of getting a driver for it are slim.
To solve this problem you need a third party burning software. Windows XP does not include the ability to properly recognize DVD's when you drag and drop and sees it as CDRW. When you bought your DVD, there may have been a disk with a version of Nero on it. It works well but there are also other third party software apps that will do as well. Even some free ones. Hope this helps.
Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.
Music CDs that are stamped by the factory have a format that Windows does not normally recognize, except thru Media player, or other aware programs.
That music format is CDA.
You need a CD ripper program to convert the CDA file to something Windows does recognize, like MP3 or WAV, then copy the files to your USB drive.
Programs that rip CD music to files are UltraISO, Media Player 10, Nero, etc..
Here's one link to using Media Player to rip your CDs.
This should get you started.
