Your CD might be done bro, I don't know what to tell ya. You can go out and buy one of those CD/DVD cleaners, but you can't guartee they will work :(

Are other CD's working??
It is unlikely that a cd would crap out for no reasopn..
If it is not seeing any cd's then try to reinstall driver

Have you ever used this CD before? Sometimes if it deosn't fully burn, the cd-drive doesn't read it. If it has worked before, then I'm not sure. Make sure the disk has a closed session.

hi.nlathia.yes i have used the cd three or four times..........

Is the cd inbad shape?
If the top (the protective layer) is not damaged. You can take it to be grinded down a little,usually a $5 repair or at least it was when I was running that machine(1997).

hi weather channel.the cd is in good shape thanks for the tip.i will look into it...
