Does anybody here know why (sometimes) certain CD's or DVD's can't be read on a computer?  On a few occasions now, I've had a DVD movie show up as if there was nothing in the drive.  Even today, I borrowed a game (DVD-ROM) off my nephew, and got the same result.

Any ideas why this happens sometimes?  I was looking forward to being entertained. :P

I've had plenty of unreadable disks, sometimes they are scratched, sometimes bad copies, sometimes your drive is getting older and the laser doesn't read things properly.
