What do you mean by not reading? There few reason for not reading.
-your player ont supporting the software format of the disks( WMA orWAV.....).
-your drive not support the type of the media you put in(+ or -.....)

This third and four reason is some thing you don't want to hear and more than likely is the cause since it is Emachine .
-You drive is going
-I personaly fix lots of Emachine and have alway tell people not buy them. garranti some thing let go within a year.

So be more detail.

I would try to uninstall and reinstall the software player see if it will read and if it doesn't read and 99% you will need a new drive. It's Emachine.
