1) They could have physically degraded and not no longer accessible, or
2) Your CD/DVD drive cannot read that specific brand of media.

If 1), then they're gone. If 2), try visiting your CD/DVD drive's manufacturer's webpage/support/download/firmware update for your model.

Are the disks re-writable? If you, find and install something like Nero's InCD to read them.
