✔ Best Answer
CD/DVD drives do get hot because they contain a laser beam and a fast-spinning disc, but that shouldn't cause any problems.

It's more likely to be the graphics card and/or the CPU that's getting too hot which is causing the game to quit. You need to ensure that the interior of the PC case is adequately cooled and free from dust build-up on the components and on the cooling vents.

Think about fitting a couple of extra case-fans and check that all the existing fans are running properly (including the fans on the CPU & graphics card).
