Unhappy Call of Duty 4 DvD ROM Reading Problem

As the title says, my computer has some troubles while reading the DvD. I was able to install it and play the first level (the ship one), then I downloaded the 1.4 patch for playing it on multiplayer. After that, every single time I try to run Single Player, I get an error saying "Please insert the correct DvD ROM." The computer anyway is able to read it, as I can explore it, copy files and run the autorun, but when I try to run SP, I always get this error message. I'm using Windows Vista.
EDIT: I also tried to make a virtual copy of the DvD, but I still get the same error.
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

Hell, there's gotta be a way to fix it, I don't want to waste my money (even if MP is great, I want to play SP too!)

We do not support that sort of thing here as Ace rightly pointed out (thanks for that)
If your unsure of the sites rules then click the text in Aces last post and read them.

As for the problem then this thread might help. It is a initial fix for a sound issue but it has also worked with dvd rom issues as well.
See Wyle-c answer in there.
At the end of my tether. COD4 SP/MP startup problems.

Unfortunately, it didn't, as the solution posted by Wyle-c was conerning the audio problem the other guy had. I hope there's a way to fix this.

Sorry m8 i can't help with your problem, but just note the 99% of the multiplayer servers run cod4 1.5. Since you have installed 1.4 you'll need to download and install this >> v1.4 - v1.5 if you wish to play on most of the servers.

Well I have 1.5 installed, I wanted just to point out when I had the first error, that is to say, after I installed patch 1.4 (which was the last one when I got CoD 4, about 2 months ago.)

Have you updated the firmware for the dvd rom drive ?
are you using any "unofficial" patches ?

I don't know if this makes sense, but if I didn't update my firmware, my computer shouldn't be able to read it and launch the autorun, right? And for being 100% honest, I don't know how to update firmwares XD
As for the patches, I downloaded them when I tried to play MP, so I think they are official ones.
