( Missing Operating System ) This usually means that your Hard Drive has crashed and you need to Format the Hard Drive and reinstall Windows or maybe even the Hard Drive itself needs to be replaced . Hope this helps . . . .
I've encountered this problem many times and unfortunately you are looking at one of two issues. (ruling out that you're using a corrupted OS disk by burning another and checking for surface scratches) You could either have a faulty cd drive which can be tested by plugging in an external cd drive purchasable for under 50 bucks...using a different cd drive cleared up this exact problem more than 90% of the time in the past. Unfortunately, older slower computers have a big track record of this happening especially when reading DVDs
You can try to re-build the operating system with the original disks. You can get a new hard drive and reinstall the OS. You can boot to Bart PE or other type of system disk to investigate the cause of the crash and try to repair it.
You haved enabled the capability for your computer to "boot" itself by reading from a boot-server connected to your network-cable.
But, the network-cable is unplugged, resulting in the "check cable" message.
What this _could_ mean is that the computer primarily tried, and failed, to boot from your disk-drive, and secondarily tried, and failed, to boot from your CD-ROM, and so it made a tertiary triy, which failed, to boot from the "network", i.e., that your hard-drive is not functioning.
Reboot, and enter "BIOS setup", and disable the "boot from network" option, to get rid of those error-messages. But, it's still possible that your disk-drive is malfunctioning.
Hmmm... were the cd's originally burned using that laptop? Or were they burned on a different pc?
It could be as simple as your cdrom doesnt like something about those cd's. Or it could be a flakey cdrom.
My suggestion, try reburning them to a different brand of disk using a different pc. Then see if your laptop will read them. If not, may need to replace the cdrom. Though it reads commercially manufactured cd's, if its flakey, it will have problems reading custom made cd's.
Other option, get a usb flash drive and copy those files from that cd, in a different pc, to the flash drive.
You don't need any special drivers or programs in order to copy mp3 files from a cd to your hard drive. Yet, you would need something in order to play them. Which media player does just fine.
