Answers :

Make certain it is the correct media for the drive. If it is CDR or CDRW media, make sure it is rated for the write speed of the drive. High Speed media for a High Speed drive is labeled with the High Speed logo. If you are testing with an audio CD, play it in your home stereo first to make sure the disc works.

Check also the disc if it has scratches that's why it skips when played. Try a known good CD.
