Default CD not being read.

My friend just burned a CD and I tried to play it on my computer and it just would not open . It says that no CD was found.

But if she takes that same CD and puts it on her computer it will play it just fine..

what could be the problem ..my computer ??

Are you trying to play a CD-RW on a CD-ROM ?

Check your device manager for any errors.
Does your CD-ROM play other disks other than this burned cd ?
