CD/DVD-ROM drive not reading some CDs

  1. OK, my CD/DVD Rom Drive won't read some CDs but reads others fine. I have checked the CD and it works perfectly fine on other computers. I have cleaned it with a CD Laser Lens Cleaner. I can not figure out why it won't read this CD.

    The CD it won't read is "Nancy Drew: The Haunted Carousel" It read the previous game CD just fine (which was Nancy Drew: Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake). Can anyone help me figure out why it will not read this CD? Any advice on how to fix the problem would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    Sometimes optical drive just start failing in weird ways... Replace it. They are not expensive and they are easy to replace, even in laptops
