    I go through the whole process of installing parallels and creating a VM and when I insert the disc for XP into my Mac Book Pro the disc drive vibrates like its trying to read it but can't and then it spits the disc back out. The disc drive functions fine on a regular basis it reads all other CDs normally.
    Thanks to anyone that can help!

    Assuming you've already tried cleaning the disk, then it sounds as if the disk is damaged.

    I think Microsoft may exchange damaged disks - certainly worth a try.

    You can try using Disk Utility to create an ISO of the disc to install from.
