Some games now come on DVD's because they are large. Do you have a CD reader. or a DVD reader which will read both CD and DVD?

A nice SATA Samsung DVD burner is only about $30.

Hey, if it says "52x" then most likely it is only a cdrom drive. As geofelt states that you can get a dvd burner for around $30 it would be a good descision considering that 52x cdroms are extremely old now and probally would have issues anyways if they were to be in use that period of time. A dvd burner would allow you to burn DVD-R/DVD-RW/CD-R/CD-RW and as well as read DVDs / CDs

If all it says is 52x, it's likely a CD ROM. You can pull it out and look at the label on the drive to be sure.
