Have you tried reading other discs after you tried that one? Do they all work fine? If it's not even recognised as a disc and other ones all work, then it's probably just a bad cd.

I had a similar problem with my iBook. It wouldn't read any CDs/DVDs...nothing. A call to AppleCare determined the drive was completely dead. Does your iMac read any CDs, or is it just this one thats causing trouble? If it won't read just this disk, it's probably a faulty CD.


If your iMac won't read anything, you should call AppleCare.
