One possibility is that you are using rewritable CDs (CD-RW), which will not work on most players. You need CD-Rs for that.
Make sure you are burning an audio disk, not a data disk.
In order for a disk you made to work on another computer or another player, you need to finalize the disk. You should see that information listed in the CD burning software in the options. If you can't find that information, comment and I'll tell you how to do it for your player.
If these don't work, I would see if another brand of CDs do work. Some brands (Memorex comes to mind) can be a little finicky where they work. I've had good luck with Verbatim, but there are other good brands.
Download and install Nero Burning Rom program, open it, set in the up window the option CD/DVD, get to preferite, copy CD or copy DVD option, depends by what you need, set the speed 4x for DVD or 8x for CD for have a good copy quality, insert the original disk, it will copy it, then insert the new disk to burn.
Your best solution (since your USB devices and your network-adapter are not working) is to remove the disk-drive from the old computer, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in the new computer, and then copy all your files from "old" to "new".
Or, try a different brand of "blank" CD-R disks -- the "firmware" (software inside the CD-writer) may not be recognizing "newly-manufactured" media). Unless you can update the firmware (by downloading the latest firmware on another computer, and burning a CD-R disk, and then taking that disk to your computer), it's easiest to "move" the disk-drive to the new computer.
If you can borrow a Microsoft full install CD for the version of Windows that came with your machine, you can do a fresh installation using the product key from the sticker on the computer. You will need to download and install hardware drivers from HP's site and also go through the Windows activation process yourself. This will give you a working computer with Windows, but none of the other applications that came preinstalled. (This isn't always a bad thing. HP systems come with a lot "bloatware" preloaded that you can live without anyway.) Unless you paid extra for an application like MS Office, you won't be missing anything.
try re-installing your burning software ( nero-Roxio et,c )
Does it play a standard Music/Audio CD.
if not un-install and re-install the drive.
Are the cables to the drive connected correctly ?
Does the drive support CD+ And CD- media ?
Are the cds definately Blank, any small amount of data written to them, after failed burn attempts will not show the disk as being empty.
I manage to start the game on Mac OS X Leopard. I have burn the CDs (CD 2 - 3 - 4, because you need them to play) and than, to solve the problem of "ejects of the disk" I have also mounted the image dmg. Then to start the game I insert the CD 2 for example, then I mount the disk image dmg (the same that I have burn on the CD) e then I open a file .bif in the folder CD2/Data/ The computer open this file and start the game!
if the cd is bad and cannot read, you have to go for a new cd
before doing that, try this cd in another system and try to copy files to the hard disk.
if it copies without error, then write it on a new cd with less write speed, for example 12x or 16x speed
and use it on your machine
