Most likely this is a failed CD drive or failed CD reader board in the drive. You can try cleaning the lens, and uninstalling the drivers for the drive from the device manager, but most liky you will have to replace the drive. When you unistall the drivers, restart the machine. it will find the CD drive and reinstall the drivers automatically. If a lens cleaning kit, or reinstalling the drivers do not work, then I'm afraid the drive will need replaced.

You mean you CDR/DVD ROM?
Is your CD scratched or dirty?
No light indicator from the ROM?
Cannot read DVD/CD? Can you view the CD/DVD content from the Windows Explorer?
When you insert your CD/DVD to the ROM no response?

CD html presentation-hyperlinks don't work with other pc's


To create an Autorun-enabled CD-ROM, proceed as follows:
  • Create an Autorun.inf File
    Autorun.inf is a text file that is located in the root folder of your application CD-ROM. It provides to the computer the name and the location of the startup program for your application that is installed when the CD-ROM is inserted. The Autorun.inf file can also contain optional information including the following:
  • The name of a file that contains an icon that represents your application's CD-ROM drive. This icon appears in Windows Explorer instead of the standard drive icon.
  • Additional commands for the shortcut menu that appears when the user right-clicks the CD-ROM icon. You can also specify the default command that runs when the user double-clicks the icon. Autorun.inf files are similar to .ini files.
  • The [autorun] section contains the default Autorun commands. All Autorun.inf files must have an [autorun] section.
  • icon: Specifies the path and the file name of an application-specific icon for the CD-ROM drive.
  • open: Specifies the path and the file name of the startup application.

Autorun.infThe following is an example of a simple Autorun.inf file. It specifies Filename.exe as the startup application. The second icon represents the CD-ROM drive instead of the standard drive icon.
[autorun]
open=Filename.exe
icon=Filename.ico

If you can get audio from your CD-Rom then it is working. From mycomputer right click on CD drive select properties from there you can see what if any problems you are having it might just need to change auto play options. If you right click on CD-drive and select explore if you can see the files on the CD you can find the .exe file that will run your software. Let me know if this helped. Larry
