My dvd drive doesn't work

If it happens for only one particular disk:
Bring that disk to a game store like Gamestop or Rock30 Games and have them professionally clean the disk for a couple bucks.

If it happens for all disks:
Clean the cd/dvd with a laser lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't fix it then the cd/dvd drive will need to be replaced.

How to install company of hero to my pc

To install this game follow these steps.
1. Put the CD/DVD in your computer (If you have a DVD version of the game and no DVD drive it won't work.) 2. The disk should be read and you can click on the autoplay/install option. If this doesn't happen go to my computer and double click the cd drive with the game icon on it. 3. Click install and follow the on screen instructions. You will need a CD key which is provided in the game case and it is usually located on the back of the instruction manual.
Hope this helps. Robert

When this starts happening, it appears that you have a problem with the DVD player. You could try to buy a DVD lens cleaner (it looks like a CD with a little brush on it), but I suspect you may ahve to take it to an authorised service technician to get the DVD unit replaced.
