Try to clean the lenses using a soft cloth.
Also check the connections of the CD Drive.
Also check in contro panel>device manager wether you have a CD Rom drive over there or not. (Mostly if its not there then connections are loose)
In most of the cases connections are loose. And even after that cleaning the lenses if the CD Rom dosent read then may be there is some problem inside the CD Rom assembly or its broken. You will have to get it repaired.

The CD-Rom will spin the disc but then it will suddenly stop and will not play/read the disc. I don't know if the eye is working wrong


sounds like the cd drive is bad, If it does this with every disc then replace the drive, if it is just the one disc, there may be scratches or damage on the disc preventing it from being read.

First off. Your hard drive cannot read CD's. Your CD-ROM is not reading CD's. Well a few things can be wrong there. 1. The CD-ROM is dead 2. The drivers for the CD-ROM needs updating 3. The CD that you are trying to read is curropt or damaged.
Start checking to eliminate and let me know.

Saving on CDom


cdroms are read only (cd-rom stands for compact disc read only memory). To save to cd, you would need a cd burner and a writeable cd.

My cd-rom will not read any disc


Sometimes there is dust that prevents the CD rom to work properly,

Try spraying some air compress (you can get air compressed cans from walmart). If that does not work, it's cheaper to get a CD-rom replacement.

Recovery


this is a READ error known as a CYCLIC REDUNDANCY READ ERROR.
If the CD ROM is not able to read from the disc .. it gives u this error
This can come due to many reasons
1. OLD CD ROM - not able to read data properly
2. CD with lot of scratches
3. CD not written properly: Data not burn properly on CD at the time of its make.

Solution: Try to insert a new CD in it and then check whether it works or not
or get a CD LENS CLEANER DISC which will remove any kind of small debris on the lens on the CD ROM and then it will work.
This would surely help
