This might be the wrong place, but I'm having an issue. I'm attempting to use an external optical drive to install a very large flight simulator from 8 different installation discs. I go through the first two, but on attempting to run the third, I ran into my issue. The optical drive just appears to shut down mid-read, and there aren't any notifications or pop-ups that occur when this happens. The light on the drive just shuts off and it stops spinning. I don't want to attempt to change any of the drivers for the drive because I'm still technically mid-installation

The drivers are up to date and it isn't getting hot. I'll take help I can get. Thank you.

Can you copy the CD contents to the computer?
Copy the first 2 then stop.
Then come back later and see if you can copy the next 2 and stop.
Do this until all 8 CDs are copied to the desktop of the computer.

The third disk may be dirty or damaged, try cleaning it wit a soft cloth like an old T-shirt.
