Boot camp won't recognise windows 8 disc

Hey guys,

forgive me I'm not totally comfortable with using the mac os.

but yeah I'm having trouble installing windows 8.1 (64 bit) via bootcamp 5.1

I run the boot camp assistant download the windows support files onto a USB stick and then when it say insert the disc or w/e it says I get "Insert your windows installer disc and wait a few seconds for the disc to be recognized"

So I do what it says and put the disc back in and it just ejects it after like 20-40secs

Again I'm not very mac savvy so I'm not sure if I am doing this right so any advice would be greatful
