    Is the drive on its own channel or is it connected with another device? If so did you make sure the master/slave/CS jumper was set properly? Can you enter the bios and check if its detected? Does it still eject when you press the button on the front? Does it show up in device manager?

    Are you sure the CD isnt blank?
    Do you have another drive in the same computer to test with?

    Do you have a copy of your OS cd still? We could rule out the operating system by booting off the CD directly.

    Configure your CD drive to format your hard drive?

    So you want to reinstall XP?

    When you boot up enter the Bios Setup and make sure that CD is the first boot choice.

    But booting from a CD has nothing to do with the OS. Thats all handled before the hard drive is even accessed
