What type of disc did you insert.
What Linux distro are you using.
What type of computer do you have make and model.
This info would help in getting a solution to your problem.

G'day @ghostrider3591 and welcome to linux.org :)

In addition to what Tom @poorguy has asked for, you have the Distro name jumbled.

Go to Menu and start to type in

welcome

click, and it will bring up the popup. Give us the details, including the DE (Desktop Environment) which could be Cinnamon, MATE or Xfce.

Cheers

Okay, I'm running Linux Mint 19.1 LTS XFCE 32bit on a General dynamics GD 8200 laptop. When I inset a store bought CD into the drive, Rthythmbox comes up, but dosen't recognize the cd. Any suggestions?

When you say a store bought CD is this a blank cd or a music cd.

Please explain what you are trying to do.

If you are trying to play a music cd then you may need to install the multi-media codecs.

Open the command terminal and copy and paste these commands one at a time.

Press enter and then enter password and press enter and follow the prompts.

sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Copy and paste this command and press enter.

sudo apt install libdvd-pkg

Copy and paste this command and press enter.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

When finished close the command terminal and restart your computer.
