Does your CD drive work for other things? On a machine that old it may just have died, so you'd need to have it replaced.

Hey Amanda. First, let's consider the software aspect. Open up Device Manager (Start > Run > type: devmgmt.msc) and look in the CD/DVD Drives section for your drive. Is it marked with a red or yellow icon?

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily.
