My dvd drive is not opening live iso images. If i put in a disc of, say photographs, the drive opens them okay. If I try to open a live dvd of a distro, such as Mint, it behaves as if the drive is empty and just opens off my hard drive.
I updated Mint yesterday and I suspect this has something to do with it.
Any ideas, anyone, please?
How did you burn the CD? I hope you didn't simply create a data CD and put the ISO file on it. That won't get you anywhere; you have to select "Burn ISO image" or something similar in your CD/DVD writing software.
Check the boot settings in your BIOS: Does it try to boot from CD/DVD at all? If so, does it try CD/DVD before HDD?

Thanks for your many suggestions. I found that, somehow, my BIOS no longer had the DVD drive as a bootable choice. Once I put that right I found all is well.
Glad you were around. Thanks again.
