If the drive reads other disks OK but just refuses to read you son's championship manager
disk. Could be the disk is damaged or just needs
a good clean.

Other suggestion. You could look inside the computer and make sure none of the connectors
to the drive have come loose. Just give the data and power connectors a push to make sure they are properly seated.
If all this fails then could be that the drive has developed a fault.
