    often a good habit to right click games icons and add the run as admin mode ticky box in compatibilty, saves a lot of hassles down the line. Not sure why the dvd drive would lock but maybe see if theres a proper removal tool on the games website support...sometimes they have them though to be honest the newest patch added a no-dvd feature anyway so doesnt need it in drive to run.

    Try uninstalling the DVD driver and the reboot pc, should redetect dvd drive and hopefully fix the issue.
