Hi darkfall13.
I would strongly suggest that your CD-ROM drive is faulty. To check, try it in another PC system (maybe a friend?) or try another drive in your PC.
Insomnia is correct (tho a little bullish) in his insistence that CD-ROM drives per se, are not required for Windows operation as Microsoft includes CD-ROM handling routines in all Windows since Win95b. Where you do need a driver is for use under DOS, but that`s another story.
Hope you get it sorted.

Question How to get this thing ?

My cd-rom stopped reading cd's and it seems that my problem is the same as above, but I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me how to get the cd-rom working again. It stopped working after my failed attempt to get our old Bernoulli Drive working on the computer with is running on '98 I believe. Any help would be appreciated. (Note: getting a new cd-rom isn't an option unless I take one out of another compter we have IF it still works)

Thank you for your time.

I repeat - take the drive out and try it in another computer, then you will know if it is working OK. Now that`s not too hard to follow is it?

This is not in my opinion a rude reply just a bit blunt.
