I don't think you're understanding the previous posts.

SecuROM (that's the proper spelling) is a form of DRM to prevent illegal copies of the game being played. Now you see, all the virtual CD/DVD drive programs (Daemon Tools/Alcohol 120) use SCSI to emulate said DVD drive. It just so happens that your SATA DVD-RW is probably detected as SCSI too as that's just how things are.

So it's probably assuming that your actual DVD drive is an emulated one and thus the DRM is denying you from using that drive to run the game. However since your IDE drive checks out fine with SecuROM, all is well.

Hopefully that clears things up somewhat...

Crysis used different protection I believe, though Crysis Warhead uses the same as COD WaW I think.
