It could be that the CD needs cleaning or it could be worn or scratched. If you can, try it in a different computer, as some drives are better at reading worn discs than others.

Well I have only used the cd once so there is no scratch and it's clean

Then when I putting in a game cd it works perfect.Most games don't play from the CD, as most of the data is installed onto your harddiskdrive; cd is only needed for the legitimicy-check.

Have you maybe turned off autorun?

You said you put in a music CD. Is that maybe a CD with copyprotection? Those are prepared to NOT play in a PC's player/burner, for obvious reasons... ;)

How do you know? In the first place that they can't be read / played on a PC's player while older music CD's still can, and
often it is also printed on the box (backside), like: "Not For PC - copyprotected" or something similar.

Just test an older CD in your player.

Put in a data-cd, and see if you can explore?

A CD with data on it in stead of music tracks. Like you copied some folders onto a cd.
Take for instance a game cd, quit the autorun (if it comes up), then open This Computer > right-click on the cd > Explore... see if you can explore the contents of that cd.

I did that now. It dosen't say there isn't a cd in it. It just comes up a empy map with nothing in it:S
