How to test CDROM on SUN E450

I have an old Sun E450. When I try to boot from the CDROM drive with a newly created Solaris 10 CD (downloaded from Sun) the system resets and then says "device not ready"

I am trying to work out of the CD is not bootable or the CDROM drive is faulty.

Can you help ?

    Make sure that you are running the latest OBP release (3.30) their was a BUG about DEVICE NOT READY for some type of drives.
    Check also at the OBP level with prove-ide-all that the cdrom drive is vissible.

    If not than try to burn on different DVDRW drive the CD.
