Over time the plastic gears wear and this is usually the reason for the vibration.This is not a indication that the drive is going its just wear and tear.You might want to replace after a while.
if it is a desktop this will be an easy change out, make sure to match it up if your old dvd drive is ide you will need an ide blueray if its sata you will need a sata blueray. but as far as i know they only have sata type bluray drives. eitherway open the case remove the screws holding the drive and swap them out. there will be the data cable (sata) and the power cable. Make sure the pc if off and unplugged when you attempt this. afterwards if any cd's came with the drive you might need to install the drivers.
Is this a copy of a game or the original. If you're trying to play off a copy, then the game is 10 to 1 copyprotected. You get this problem when a copy protected game is copied and trying to play it from the copy.
Vista sucks. However, delete your drive and change the IDE cable. Also, put the drive onto another IDE channel so it re-initializes your drive - winodws data bases a drive when it has more than 5 DMA errors and clocks its speed down to PIO - very slow
is this new? but a dvd in and it be a drive d: or E: when you look at in "my computer" or "windows explorer" the drive icon should show the little game icon.. you also might try just to explore the drive and see if you see folders and things, a setup should appear or the "game".exe if you you cant see anything reboot and hit your set-up key, mine is f1 ...then look at the drives it finds.
I need more info..to really help.
you can try uninstalling the drive, by going to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down the list for cd/dvd drives, click on '+' sign and right click on your drive make and select uninstal.
Restart pc and your drive will be reinstalled automatically again.
If you have a cd cleaner disc run that also.
Try to run the game again, although it may still not work as the drives laser seems to be out of line or simply run it's life, and a new drive is the only answer i'm afraid.
