Crw2100s won't open a good install cd

I recently updated from win2000 to xp pro and then tried to install a new version of Peachtree acct. I cannot see anything on the install cd however it is a good cd and is loadable on a different computer. At the same time other cds load ok on the first machine.
I am wondering if there is some firmware problem that needs to be addressed with XP.
Any ideas appreciated.

Firmware shouldn’t be an issue, not for reading discs. If any disc is readable in the drive, then it isn’t an XP issue. I’d be more likely to think you have an actual drive issue, as opposed to a driver issue.
