Some more information might be helpful, such as which Linux distribution you're using (there is no "linux 8.04" - could you perhaps mean Ubuntu 8.04?). Have you tried the same disk in other CD drives, or other disks in your drive?

...also, what kind of CD? Audio, Data?

If Data, is it a disc you burned like in Nero on Windows, or is it an installation disc?
