    If there's a problem with reading the CD it's either your CD reader or the CD. You can always replace the the reader or the disc.

    As JMMD pointed out it is either a problem with the disk ( look for smudges or scratches ont he disk) or a problem with the reader. ( try another cd or DVD rom)
