Try a few cd-es and see if they all behave the same ...if some are read and some not ..than the cd-es are either protected or they are in a format that this one do not support ..but if they all behave the same and it is not reading them it means that the read-head is faulty and need to be cleaned or changed..

In most of the cases,this problem is not related to cd.But still get the cd checked in any other player too,this will confirm the fault.Also try other various cds in the cd player and confirm.But if the cds not playing in other player too then its faulty cd.But this is very rare.Most probably the fault is related to cd player.In the cd player unit there are two main parts.One is cd spinning motor and other is cd reading lens(its also called "EYE" of the cd player).But as you said that cd spin but its not playing,.This clears that motor is working,but its not playing so its the problem of lens.The lens is not reading the cd,because its got dirty or its got cracked and faulty.The cd player lens is made up of thin glass and its very delicate.Many a times dust gets collected on the lens,so the lens stops reading the cd and it do not play.Some times there is no dirt on lens but it gets cracked,if by mistake any pressure is applied on the unit or up-side down cd is placed in the tray or internal short circuit has occurred.This are few possibilities of lens not working.But in most of the cases its dirty lens causing this problem.SO open the tray by pressing the eject button,then unplug the unit from main power outlet,by keeping the cd tray open.Then take air blower and blow air in the unit.Please remove,if there is any cd in the tray while blowing air.Just blow air for few minutes.Then take a dry tissue and clan the cd placing tray externally and then reconnect the power and see,if that is helping or not.If the problem is same as before,then disassemble the unit and clean the lens manually by hand using dry tissue paper and then see if its helping.But take care while cleaning the lens with dry tissue you dont apply too much pressure on lens or any other parts.Also before removing any screw to disassemble the unit.Take a marker with you ready.Just mark the position of parts and screws before removing.If you have a cell phone with web cam in it then take a photo of the internal parts before moving any parts.Disassembly is not very hard but reassembling is not easy.So this pictures and marks with help you for reassembly.----------But if lens is cracked internally then the lens assembly has to be replaced.You can get it replaced from local cd /dvd player repair center.They have this parts with them.--------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
