But yes somtimes games don't recognize diffrent types of dvd drives very well. I had this happen to me a while back with some other game, and when I tried it with another dvd drive it worked great.
If you re-install it and have no other option I think there are ways to start the game without the dvd. I know there was something like this for B2. All it needs the dvd is for authentication to start the game and then you can take it out.
Edit: btw when you get it workin let me know how it plays on your system. I notice you have a stock 3200+ and only a gig of ram with a x600..
