    my cd drive wont take cds...?

    i just started up my new pc for the first time. i have a boot disk to get into a dos prompt and i want to load XP from a cd but my slim drive wont take the cd. the light on the front of the drive is on... but when i push the cd into the drive nothing happens. it almost feels like there is a spring trying to push it back out.

    any ideas? how do i get the computer to recognise the drive?

    It would problem help if you specify what the specs of your computer are and the make and model of the drive.
