    There has been many reported cases of high speed CD readers (48X or faster) spinning the disk fast enough that a minor flaw in the CD disk will explosively fail with a bang, reducing the CD, and the fragile laser read head into scrap... It sounds like your a victim of this... Time to go shopping for a replacement reader...

    Adding on to what Len said, Starcraft is an old game, and because of that, the age of the disc might have been a factor.

    Why don't you go out and get a fancy-shamanzy DvD burner drive. I got mine for 30 bucks (Sony 16x Dual Layer) from a local computer shop, so shop around for deals... oh, and pick up a new copy of Starcraft while you're at it lol

    Course, the drive won't explode like this... YouTube - Exploding CD-ROM

    54-58x and up will explode, and your cd was probably old, and your drive was probably on the end of its life.

    I thought video games were pressed media? I still play ps1 games and they work like magic.

    Were you talking about scratches?
