I have bought an alienware laptop about a year ago, and quickly installed my steam games, which work fine. Recently I found my old physical games (like Spore, World of Warcraft, The Sims 3, etc.). When I try to put them in and play, they just appear as blank discs, as if I had just put in a blank dvd. Maybe it's because I got the computer from America and the games are European (I live in Portugal, to be more specific). Someone please help

If the discs show as blank and have 'room' to burn to (usually 4.7GB) then the disk is blank. Otherwise the DVD drive may not be reading the right type of 'discs' those are? FYI, European editions aren't allowed to work on American OSes normally, Windows detects and due to legal issues, when it talks to the software it won't allow it to work as this would violate International Trade Laws.
