Check the Game CD/DVD requirements. If your game CD is newer than your PC, your PC may not be fast enough or you may not have enough memory - RAM - to satisfy the newer RAM hungry games.

OR one of your RAM modules may have failed. Check System memory summary. If the summary says, ie, 128MB RAM, but you have 2 128MB RAM modules installed, 1 RAM module has failed.

OR your CD Drive may have dirty optics. Insert a CD cleaner disk, run it for several cycles to clean off the optics with the brushes on the data side of the cleaner CD.

MY Macbook pro disc drive wont read the Starcraft game discs. Every other cd or dvd i put in the drive at least reads, but when I put in starcraft it just spins for a second, pauses, and spins again...


I was pretty disappointed when I couldn't play a 12 year old game on my new macbook either. The best thing to do is go to battle.net, load up the CD key and then load the software onto your mac. The downside is that you will need internet access before playing even if you play single player. That's the way I got around it.

Disc Reader not reading disc


You can try to Clean with dvd cleaning kits...if doesn´t work..the only way fix is to disassemble the 360 and force the dvd laser adjusting the micro pot...located under the laser unit..But you will loose warranty and I think that the best way is to send your game console to microsoft...what hurts is that $140,00 you can buy 02 or even 03 xbox drives on ebay. Choose the best way! Good Luck!

If still the CD Drive cannot read the Disc then you should another CD Drive if this game is still working or read. CD Games Disc cannot be easily damage or broke even you keep it in a long years.
Try another CD/DVD Drive to run the game or Use another Computer to see it is still work.
Good luck!

Wont read games. Console says insert game into xbox 360 or open tray.


you might need to clean your laser, if they get dirty from playing games they won't read anything. When you put a game in the laser flashes once to read what type of disc is in, if its dirty it wont read anything and thinks there is no disc in it. If cleaning it dosen't help then you might just have to replace the laser. They aren't overly expensive and they are pretty easy to install as well.

Playstation 2 comsole making strange noises


there is this kind of disc that has little brushes on it for cleaning lens in dvd players, cd players, computers, basicly anything with disc player of some sort and it works great for PS2s (I have used it on mine and my freind's.) I can't remember the name of my cd now now and I can't find it but you can probley find one in most computer stores or wal-marts. but it is posible that the there is something wrong with the motor/gear assebley in the drive on your ps2 (which the cd wouldn't fix) but that is probly not the case since it plays games alright. Good Luck! I Hope You Get The Problem Fixed!!

CD Player will not play all CD-R discs only ones it chooses. But if the CD is bought from a store it will play it.....if it is burned it usually will not.....even if the cd was just brned and plays on...


It might be an older system that can't read computer-made discs, or it could be a disc incapability. Most old players can't read CD-R discs, even if they can play normal/original CDs. You can try another media but i wont think it will help. Sorry.
