If the drive reads other disks ok then,

1. Reboot and try again
2. Inspect the fifa08 disk for cracks, scratches, fingerprints, etc. and clean the disk.

I hate to make this as a cause for everything, but what DRM does this game have? Laptops behave differently with DRM like SecuRom than PC's do and people regularly get disc authentication errors such as being asked to insert the proper disc into the drive. Also, if this is a game that uses online authentication, you need to make sure you have two discs otherwise it might fail to run on alternating PC as it bears the same license number etc.

I've had the problem; most recently with my C&C Generals disk. The problem is intermittent and has only occured when using my cd writer or dvd writer. It's never occured using a read only drive.

Problem is I've never been able to pin down the problem with any certainty Installing a new drive eliminated the problem for a year or so, cleaning the drive seemed to help for a short time, and cleaning the C&C disk didn't make much difference.

To make matters worse (or more confusing), the cd works perfectly on an old 4X CD-ROM made in 1994.
