    Ok so I have successfully gotten windows 7 on my imac with vmware fusion. I want to play a pc game so i put it in my cd drive and nothing happens with windows. I go to the correct drive click on it and it says nothing in the drive if you know how to fix this problem please tell me.

    Have you installed VMware Tools?

    CPU/GPU taxing games should played with bootcamp.

    I agree, but that is not the issue here
    The issue is the CD is not being read

    Does OS X version of your computer read the cd even if you can't use it? In my experiences with VMware somehow my drives would randomly get disabled, i always had to go through settings and turn them back on again, i hope that helps a little bit.
