CD Rom drive problem

This has to be the newbie question of the day but I'm trying to get NDISwrapper to work with my Belkin 54g network card (yes I know about driverloader, no i dont want to have to buy it). I've read on the sourceforge site (only installed MDK 10.0 Official last night) that you have to install the kernel after installing the OS (why doesnt it do this for you?) and after logging in to root i run # urpmi kernel-source and it asks me a yes or no question (i say yes!) it prompts to insert my installation CD #3.
Heres where the problem starts. It keeps ejecting my disc and reprompting. Now I've tried all the cd's in case I labelled them wrong. In the explorer utility it doesnt even show any files on the disc! What am I doing wrong? The drive is a DVD/CDRW.
Thanks in advance for any help.

*edit* just to add that the cd is fine as is the drive itself
