Default cd/dvd drives not reading certain discs

rookie question but my drives arent reading certain games and discs. example it wont read crysis. they read every other game or disc i have including games like fallout 3. it also wont read some burnt dvd discs. I have a cd drive and a dvd/cd drive and when i try to load crysis it revs up and then clicks and stops. Im pretty sure i just need a new drive cause its probably 5+ years old. Anyone know any other reasons why they wouldnt read the discs. (and no im not trying to read blue ray discs im not that much of a rookie).

specs for the drives i couldnt tell you im at work

I'm not familiar with the discs those games are on, are they cd's or dvd's? Is the drive a cd or dvd drive? I would start there.

If everything is compatible then I'd suggest a new drive. DVD/CD drives can be had for $25-$30 these days.
