@eddie, MUCH more info is needed.
is it an original or a backup?
what are the symptoms when you insert a cd?
does it read dvds fine?
does the drive spion with a cd inside or does nothing happen?
is this a new drive or was it working correctly before and suddenly stopped?
do you have any virtual drives or copy software onyour system that might be blacklisted by the game's copy protection scheme?
there are some very helpful people on the forum, but they need some info to go off of.
"my drive won't read cds" isn't going to get many responses.
also, for future reference, cross posting (posting the same thing in more than one place) is not allowed on this forum.
