Recently just got a external disc drive and started running the old Spore on it. It is recognized as Spore on my computer, which is running Windows 10, but it does not download and does not allow me to open it and start the game. It recognizes the game on the disc drive as a external slot, but not yet as a game. What should I do?

The "SecuROM protection" disables external hard drive aswell CD / DVD burners to prevent "piracy".
That will be the error, why it doesn't work. If the game correctly installed from CD, it runs on the PC without CD.
Better would be a digital download through Origin
