CD suddenly not working

A friend of mine has an audio CD that has suddenly stopped working. We've tried it on 3 different PC's (and a CD player) all with the same result: "Please insert CD/DVD" message. It has worked fine before and there are no signs of any dirt or scratches on it. We've tried "Explore - Open etc" still with the same message appearing.

Is it a normal audio CD, or a copy?, as some can deteriorate with time, especially if stored in daylight.

You can try cleaning, even if it doesn't look scratched.

Thanks Fingees. The disk has been cleaned and has only been run several times but still the error message appears!
