DVD issues. DVD Games freeze on 'splash screen' upon starting up, any ideas?

  1. Hi, you'll have to bear with me as i'm not too bright when it comes to all this.

    I have a problem with my DVD drive (at least, i believe that's it). Every time I try to run a game that requires a DVD in it, i get to the 'splash' graphic for the game that you get on windows before the game kicks in, and then, nothing.

    It's not game specific, it does it with pretty much all my DVD games. I know its not the PC as when i put a no-dvd crack on the games, they work absoloutely fine. It's a short term fix but by no means ideal, and i really can't figure out what the problem is. Any ideas folks?

    Thanks!
