I bought a cd today and it was playing in the car perfectly. Now I'm  home and it wont download at all I put it and and it will make a couple of noises then spit the cd out. So of course I tried another cd and it worked, then i tried another and it didnt work it spit it out. I dont know what do the rest of the cds on the trilogy downloaded just not this one. I really dont want to have to buy it on itunes.

    Make sure it's free of fingerprints and smudges. An optical drive cannot read a dirty disc.

    I dunno. use a cd brush-type cleaning disk. Maybe repair permissions. sometimes the cd drive is a little funny about scratched disks. I had the same problem with a cd I bought 2 months ago. Out of the case, into my cd drive and....nothing. Eventually I got it working. Also, if you are comfortable with doing so, shut down the machine, take the cd drive out and clean the laser lens, but I'm thinking "no" on that one


    good luck
