For some unknown reason, everytime I try and play a game I get a "Cannot detect cd rom" error which is common with copied games, but I'm using real games.

The drives operate fine, but the cd checks on games don't seem to work.
They've been working fine until today when I tried San Andreas and got the error, and then got the same error with the rest of my games.

[EDIT: Forgot to mention that I get this error with both my Cd and Dvd Drives.]

That was going to be my question, some games can detect virtual drives and won't run if they are active.

Have you recently installed a drive emulation program such as Alcohol 120%, CloneCD or Daemon Tools? They can mess with CD checks.

It's with all games that have cd protection checks.
I've just been listening to an audio cd in one of the drives and it works fine.

Sorry didn't notice this thread before, is it only with GTA-sa? or is it with all your games? have you tried just a regular audio CD to check that it works?
