Hi, and welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting with your question.
Please go to Start>Computer>right click on the cd drive listing and click 'Open'. Does it bring up the contents of the disk?
It says "Insert a disc"; "Please insert a disc into drive E:."
The disc is in my hand, but only because when I right clicked on the dvd drive to click open the computer spits it out. (I have an HP touchsmart desktop)
I do have the 25 digit product activation code.
Thanks for the clarification.
Please visit the link below to download and install MS Office 2010 directly by entering your product activation key:
Hope this helps.
Keep me posted.
