It's having trouble reading the CDs. The thing that reads it could be dirty. But try a different cd. The CD player is getting old and if there is even a small scratch it will be hard to read it. A new CD player would be the way to go
Mine did the same thing. My player was primarily used in the garage and the cold weather may have caused my player to do the same thing. I just fixed my player. I removed the top cover and looked at the CD in the play position. In the upper right corner from the CD, you will see a spindle motor with a belt on it. Gently spin the motor back and forth carefully with your finger. I rotated it a half-spin in either direction, careful not to dislodge the belt. When I turned the player back on, the mechanism operated as it normally would and began playing the disc. I was able to eject and reinsert the magazine without any issues, solving the problem. Hopefully that will work for you.
What do you mean download cd's and dvd's? You don't download them, you
simply put them in the drive and play them. If you purchased a music cd
or a movie dvd that you want to play or watch, then just put it in the
drive. The system will recognize it and automatically open Windows
Media Player for you to play it or you can open it yourself if autoplay
is not active.
Exactly what is it that you are trying to do?
If you are talking about putting a blank cd or dvd into the drive to
copy music or a movie to it, that's another story and will take a while
to explain. You will basically need to make sure your CD/DvD drive can
burn CD's or Dvd's. Then you will need some type of burning software
(later versions of Window Media Player will burn).
Click Start/My Computer and look at your devices. if your DvD/CD Drive
is listed look for RW which means rewritable (it can burn or copy). If
it say DVDrw it can read and write dvd's. If it says CDrw it can read
and write cd's. You can also look on the drive door on the computer
where you would place the cd or dvd. If it says Rewritable CDrw (it
can write cd's) or DvDrw (it can write dvd's). If it says ROM (read
only media), that means it can Read Only and not write.
If the drive is rewritable then the software such as Media Player will
allow you to go find what you want to put on the cd or dvd. You have
two ways of putting things in the software to burn or write. You can
copy and paste, or you can drag and drop.
It's dead. Mine did the same thing, but I noticed also that the disc never spun up fast enough to be read successfully. I'm guessing that the motor just lost its oomph. I imagine that one way or another it's fixable, but with portables so cheap and a player this old not being able to read anything but manufactured CDs, i.e., no CD-R, CD-RW, etc., it's not worth it. And mine was old enough to vote! :)
