Does your computer see other discs in that drive?
If not then a problem with the drive is most likely such as driver or 
hardware itself.
If it does see discs then problem with disc is most likely. In which case:
Do other devices/computers see the disc when inserted into them?
If yes then I'm stumped.
If no then the problem is that the disc is damaged, corrupted, or some 
other issue.
If no devices to check it with, contact the supplier to double check. It 
could be that the disc was incorrectly formatted so your drive does not 
recognise it and so does not show it. Discs written with bad formatting 
often work on the device that wrote to them first but not to others.
