Anyone know a reason why a CD Rom would get very hot playing certain games, the discs can get very hot indeed, it is quite new cd rom

and it creates a lot of heat when it's running for lengthy periods.

Agreed lots of disk access can make the CD hot if the game requires access to the CD whilst playing then the CD will get hot,you could try copying all the data from the CD to the hard drive,mostly its sound/music files that the game needs to access so copy them over to the hard drive may lessen CD usage,also if you have 2 CD drives make sure they are separated as much as you can to help heat dissipation.
