Someone gave me a CD with a program on it. Everyone else he gave it to has had no problem installing it. When I put it in my CD drive, the drive just tries reading it and doesn't stop. I can't get it to do anything. I've tried 3 or 4 different ways to get it to work. All that happens is my CD drive light keeps blinking, the drive keeps running, and the hard drive light keeps blinking at a constant rate. Any ideas?

Could be an error on the disc. Has anyone else installed from this particular CD?

Yes they have installed from it. One guy had some trouble, but was able to get it worked out.

If it´s a CD-R or even a CD-RW, your drive might have trouble with that brand of medium (normal pressed CDs are less critical). You might want to try reading the CD in a different PC; If it works there, it might indeed be the CD. If you´ve got a second drive in your computer (a burner, for instance), it might help to try that.

Thanks guys. I'll try and have someone else burn a copy of it and then try the copy.
