no solution, but i hate that game, not worth your time if you ask me. if i had to geuss at the problem... one, is it possible that you have an older cd-rom not capable of reading burned cd's? i know one of my computers has this problem, sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. also you should make sure when the cd was burned it was closed correctly... i know on my cd burner it gives the option to allow it to read on any cd-rom, any cd-burner, or and cd-playa in general. so even if your cd-rom is new enough, if the cd wasn't closed for regular cd-roms but rather it was closed for reading on cd-burners only then you would have a problem. just an idea
