Answers :

There are one of 2 things that are happening. One, the reader on the CD drive is dusty, so carefully check the head, it is a luminescent bulbish thing in the middle of the open drive. Otherwise, your CD's (including past cd's) may have been dusty, and damaged the drive, in which you need to replace the drive. If your computer is under warranty then send it back and tell them this.\015\012
