Firstly, make sure you actually have a DVD rom. A DVD rom game will likely allow you to install it but won't allow you to play it if you don't have a DVD rom and only have a CD rom. Secondly, if it is a DVD rom, check if that drive is writable. If so, make sure that the game doesn't have SecuRom which is really touch and go with regard to CD's in writable drives. It will tell you repeatedly to put the correct disc in the drive when you know you have done so.
