cd drive wont read specific game disc

Specs: Windows Vista
okay, im on a laptop its a acer aspire 8930 and the problem im having is only with the game Heroes of Might and Magic 5, my cd drive wont read it or even recognize that a cd is in the drive, i tried copy the files from the cd since it works fine with other computers and then moving them to an external hard disk drive and then installing the game, that worked, but the game needs the cd to run, and my cd drive just wont read it.. ive searched the net but its hard finding just the answer you need. so im hoping this post here will help.

ive tried updating my drivers, reseting bios, the thing about the notepad where u create a new reg file and none of that works, also the game has previously been installed on my system and worked without problems.. ive since then made recovery of my system.

i really dont know what to do about it, i tried writing the tech support for the game but havent gotten any answers yet.

thanks in advance for any and all help.

... have you tried making an "iso" image of the disc?

... then run it off the virtual drive: http://www.isodisk.com/
