    Were you able to install it in the past on that PC using that DVD drive? If you have a DVD disk cleaning disk I'd give it a try. That will clean any dust off of the lasers lens.

    If the original game has DRM baked in that's what happens. They don't want you copying the disk. If you have the original disk try that.
