Can anyone tell me why my copy of sim golf will not work in a CD/DVD drive

I’m haveing trouble with a burnt copy of sim golf on my Compaq note book.
I have read on this site that you need to install clone CD which i have, and tick the hide CDR media in the system tray.
How do you do this? where is the system tray? and do you need to reinstall the game?

can anyone tell me how you enable hide CDR media on the system tray?
