Is the 'D' drive the cd/dvd drive? If so, try cds or dvds of different types to see what works. Some cd units won't read a dvd. A little light should come on if the drive is trying to read. No light, drive is dead.
Hard drives are used for storing files or loading applications. A CD-Rom drive is what you need to read cd's and a DVD-Rom drive which can read both. You cant place a cd, dvd or blu-ray disc into a hardrive because it is enclose and does not have and open/close button for the tray to eject or close
your drive is not being read,
have you set BIOS to boot from CD ROM,
is your CD ROM working,
is your XP CD working
Do the following
1 go to BIOS and re-set to BOOT from CD ROM
2 use another copy of XP/Win98/Vista etc to verify if CR ROM is reading the CDs else...
if you doubt CD ROM drive has a problem....
3 use a USB external CD ROM, and to do that u need to re-set the BIOS to boot from USB CD ROM
What kind of CD-ROM drive is it, and what kind of discs are you trying to load? If it's an older drive and you are trying to read CD-R or CD-RW media, it may not support reading them. I've had problems reading them on newer drives also like those TrueX things that flopped a few years back. There could be lots of other reasons. The discs may be scratched or need cleaning, and if not the lens in the CD-ROM may need cleaning.Regrads, Solver.

Hi, I think that your os has been crashed. So insert your disk and boot your system and check that your BIOS will boot from CD (Boot preference - CD ROM). And install a fresh copy of your os. Let me know the result.
