You arent doing anything wrong, there is a problem either with the disc or the drive , can your other pc read the disk if so the problem is more than likely the drive.

How to plug front panal wires in mother board of compac evo d510 cmt?

I realize that this posted problem is over 4 months old, but in the interest it may help someone;

According to Compaq this is the motherboard used in the Evo D510 Convertible Mini-Tower,

Observe the blue long female connector on the motherboard. This connector is where the 40-pin flat IDE ribbon cable for the Harddrive, plugs in.

(On the above link; it may not work as a direct link. It is a PDF file you download.
In case it does not work just by clicking on it; copy it, paste it into your address bar, press the Enter key )

Scroll the page down to a little more than halfway. Observe the illustration of the motherboard to the Left of the page.
(Has J22, J21, P23, J20, J40, P54, above it)

Look at CR1, CR2, CR4, and P5

PCI simple Communication Controller

Drivers are here:
Just click evo d510 cmt, then download drivers and software.

You should now be at a page that lists all of hp's drivers for your system.

I think PCI simple Communication Controller would be your modem, which I saw on that page, and also the driver for your ethernet controller.
