Does it work in a normal Pc or is it just a laptop you have?

Seems like it's a known problem James.

A fix that has apparently worked is: -

Solution for Plextor PX-712A (V1.05) that worked for me:

1. Download and install PlexTools Professional V.2.18 from here: http://www.plextools.com/download/download.asp

2. Put HL2-DVDROM in burner.

3. Drive Settings > DVD Read Speed Setting > 3-8 X CAV

At least this worked for Half Life 2 and the "Unable to authenticate original disc in time limit"-problem. :)

If PlexTools does not support your DVD-drive, use Nero DriveSpeed (http://www.cdspeed2000.com/go.php3?link=download.html#nerodrivespeed) to reduce your 'DVD Read Speed'. (Nero burning software includes Nero DriveSpeed). This trick also worked for me - HL2 starts every time!

Good luck!
