It sounds like something is wrong with the CD you burned. Take a paperclip and straighten it out. Open the CD rom cover flap if there is one covering it. There will be a small hole in the cd drive under the CD tray. Stick the paper clip in and push. This will release the tray. Pull the tray out manually and remove the cd, then push the tray back in gently and reboot your computer.
There should be a small hole on the front panel of the DVD-ROM. Take a paper clip and insert it into the hole and push to open the tray. If the DVD-ROM tray continues to malfunction, you'll need to replace it. DVD-ROMS run anywhere from $25.00 to $75.00.
The first thing to do if you have'nt already is check the ide cables connected aren't loose, then; right click on the cd rom in system properties and uninstal it, re-boot the system and let the pc find the cd drive again and try again.
Failing that there is a cdrom checker on the microsoft web site, although you will have to search for it, as i can't remember the page, or if you use nero burning rom, it's got a drive checker also.
If you have to buy another cdrom they are very cheap and easy to fit.
