Issues installing Act 2010 on Windows 7

Just purchased Act 2010 and my new Dell Studio desktop with Windows 7 doesnt want to read the disc.  My old HP laptop with XP reads the disc fine. 

 

I tried other software discs on the Dell and it drive works.  I rebooted and disabled firewall but Dell still doesnt read disc.  Anyone have similar experience or have suggestions before I send disc back?  Thank you

Every so often I have seen some PCs just don't get along nicely with a CD.

 

I would put it in the PC that does read it and copy the entire contents to a USB stick - you won't need a very big one - 1GB is fine.

 

Then install it from the stick on the Win7 machine...
