CD not showing up on desktop - Mac Applications & Software

Hello: I installed an Apacer CD-ROM burner in my Mac G4 450Mhz (OS 0.2.6). I've had no trouble with it all, but today I put a data CD-ROM in the drive, and it doesn't show up on the desktop at all. I have put the CD in other computers and it works fine. Does anyone have any suggestions for troubleshooting this problem, or advice as to where to direct my question? Many thanks, Gary...

    Did you install a driver for it? The Apple drivers do not work with non-Apple
    CD recorders; a non-Apple CD recorder won't mount CDs unless you install some
    kind of third-party CD mounting software, such as Toast CD Reader.

    Oh, it's just the one CD? Is it a manufactured CD-ROM or a burned
    CD-R/CD-RW?
