CD not being read

I recently got a CD from a friend with Fallout 3 on it
it isn’t the original disc but it contains the files
the disc isn’t reacting with my computer when i insert it into either the DVD or CD drives
Its a windows xp home edition if that means anythin ??
yeh so how do i make it work?

Welcome to the board.
The problems you are having is due to the manufacturers copy protection.
Alas as this is probably a pirated copy you will not get help here.:cop:
