    Having problem with my CD ROM drive recognizing disks

    the problem is, if my computer has been on for a couple hours, and i go and try to play a game, a message says please insert disk, but its already in there, and i open up the drive and close it and it still dose it, but if i restart it, or start the game as soon as i turn the comp on it works fine. any one know what might be wrong?

    I have WinXP, Gateway sys, and I have all the hibernate stuff turned completely off.

    I'd say that was a hardware problem since I had one like that at work it was resolved by swapping CDROM's. Never really did find out the cause though.
