Doom3 uses copy protection which doesn't always work well with older cd drives, so as BBG says try another drive if possible.

Go to your drive vendor´s site and look for the latest firmware. Diablo II wouldn´t recognize my drive until I updated my firmware.

if your system has more than 1 cd drive some games tend to want to use the drive that comes first in the drive lettering

It doesn't default to the first driver letter, the default is the drive it's installed from, maybe you have alcohol, blindwrite, Nero or clonecd installed, something that uses a virtual drive, you might want to un-install that
