    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...

    Regardless of it being pressed media, it still experiences wear and tear from use. you use anything long enough, it will eventually wear out.

    Also, any kind of imperfections, stemming from a manufacturing flaw, or wear and tear/abuse, can lead to a disc flying apart at high speeds, because it brings about an imbalance while spinning.

    When a CD Rom is spinning in a 52x drive, it is spinning at 10,350 RPM. Thats Damn fast. To give you an idea, My cars engine red-lines at 7000 rpm. If it wasn't for the CD-drives casing, pieces of CD would have flown out and injured you.

    That explosion you heard was something that was spinning VERY fast, coming to a complete and abrupt halt.

    Take this video for example: YouTube - Exploding cd in cd/dvd drive.

    Can you make a backup of a game to prevent this?

    Making a back up is one thing, duplicating the security protection is another thing, and unfortunately, I can't explain how to do that here, since that would delve into how to pirate software...
