First: Double check that your CDROM is working.

Second: Go to Places/Computer/<your cdrom device name> and see if it's mounted. If it is not mounted:

sudo mount -a

check that the drive mounted. If it is mounted, go to the next step.

Third: If the CDROM can read, go to System/Administration/Software Sources, again and try adding the CD.
