2 things wrong.

1. All capital letter posts are like shouting. And hard to read. Most will pass up such a post.

2. You didn't notice the forum note. Here's a copy for you to fill in the missing information:

Sorry about the Caps, just wasn't thinking. I'm really not sure about type of computer, It says Hp Pavillion 6730, running Windows ME edition. I hope that is enough info. I thank you for all your help.

And what is the issue/problem?

I read a little about the machine, but no problem. Hint: I skipped the all capital posts.

If you have a failed CDRW drive, then replace it. It's very cheap and many will want to try reloading the OS so if you are inclined to do that, please do so we can get past that.

Failed CDROM drives are too common.

When I put a CD into my computer I don't get an error message, I don't get anything. The drive looks like it is working (lights blinking) then nothing. I have no idea what a OS is or maybe I would try reloading it. Thanks for your help an advice.

happen with any CD?

Try using a cleaning CD that you can easily find in a more or less generic shop.

As pointed above, it's not uncommon to see CD-ROM drives go bad. In that case you must replace it.

It happens with instructional CD's, if I play a music CD it works. Thanks for your help, may have to go buy a new computer, as you can tell I am not a computer wizard. Again Thanks for your help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
