    Are the games burned onto DVD+R media?
    There is a difference between DVD+R and DVD-R, and early drives can read/write to only one of the formats.

    If you're talking about commercially-produced CDs/DVDs, then I'd think you have a faulty disc or a faulty drive.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    All games or just one? It could be their copy protection. I had a problem like that on my home computer with Oblivion. I installed it from a networked dvd drive then used the nocd patch to play it.
