You want to eliminate the following - Bad CD player or bad drivers.Get a buddy to down and burn the latest Ubuntu (Google it) Linux ISO boot file.Insert it into the CD and attempt to boot from it. If it boots then your hardware is fine.
If your trying to reinstall a new copy of Windows in your computer then first thing you need to do is change the Boot sequence of your computer so it will load the Windows CD you inserted then it will run the set up.
To change Boot sequence: 1. Go to BIOS - Press F1 or F2 (depends on model of your computer) immediately after you turn you computer on 2. Go to Boot Menu on the top of the window 3. Change your Boot priority - make sure your dvd drive is your first or primary boot. 4. Press F10 to save and exit.
Make sure you have your Windows CD inserted before pressing F10 coz your computer will restart and will loadautomatically load and run the Windows Setup
Note: If a message "Press any key to boot from CD" appear on a black screen press any key to start the set up

No, this is a known error within Windows. Read more information on it here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555302
But, if you are like me and don't like to read, just put your windows XP installation CD into the CD-ROM, boot up from the CD-ROM, DO NOT reinstall the operating system...just repair the installation and run "chkdsk /r".
Once that is done, restart the machine and it should boot up fine.
While it's not legal to download, and burn DVD's illegally, if your rom has issues reading burned DVD / CD data, your drive may be faulty, or just needs to be blown out. Use a can of compressed air available from most office supply stores and blow any dust or debris out of the drive. Be careful not to touch the Lense, they are quite delacate.
If your drive still fails to read burned media, but does fine with normal media, the drive may not be able to read burned media at all, and you will need to replace it to do so.
hi im josh in cebu phils. friend when it happens when you cannot burn your cd the problem centers on the software and device it self. the first thing to do is try to reinstall or install other burning program such as alcohol, nero, etc.try different programs.when it stilll occurs then the problem is you device.just replace it. Good luck
This is generally an indication that the DVD end of the drive is going out. First try a different or updated DVD decoding software. It could just be a simple glitch with the software, or that the software is outdated.
Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at filehippo.com, download.com, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.
