It's probably a faulty drive.

Try using an original disk, then go in to My Computer and double click on the CD drive. What happens?

Either the drive is faulty or the lens on the drive is dirty. If it's a laptop you could try cleaning the lens with a cotton bud, jut be careful not to apply too much pressure.
