    What exactly happens when you put a disc in? Does the computer react like it is trying to read the disc? Does this happen with all discs, or just a certain type?

    Also make sure you are trying a real CD and not a CD-R (ie a disc you bought not one someone has made with a CD writer). Some CD writers are incompatible with discs made on some other CD writers (unofficially but in experience).
