Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare not working?



Hi everyone i’m new to the forum and been searching for a way to get my game to work!

I have a HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8161B and when i go to insert my game into the rom it makes a clicky noise and it doesnt load AT ALL. From what i read there are things called firmware but i have never heard or dealt with these before? I have a gateway computer probably about 5 years old. Do i need a new cd rom drive or is there a way to fix these things. Thanks alot


You may need a new drive if it’s not reading the disc and just making a clicking sound but does it do it with other disc’s or just COD? if it does it with a load of different disc’s then the drive could be on it’s way out but if it’s only doing it with COD then it may be a scratched disc’s. If it does do it only with COD you could try COD in someone else machines to see if it works there or not.
