I am having a problem with my cd rom not working or getting updates for it I went to the update manager and this is what I read when I went to settings.

W:Failed to fetch cdrom://Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS _Precise Pangolin_ - Release i386 (20140204)/dists/precise/main/binary-i386/Packages  Please use apt-cdrom to make this CD-ROM recognized by APT. apt-get update cannot be used to add new CD-ROMs
W:Failed to fetch cdrom://Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS _Precise Pangolin_ - Release i386 (20140204)/dists/precise/restricted/binary-i386/Packages  Please use apt-cdrom to make this CD-ROM recognized by APT. apt-get update cannot be used to add new CD-ROMs
E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Dose anyone know what this means? Thanks in advance.

This means that your CDROM is listed as a source to "download" packages from. If you go into your "Ubuntu Software Center" and edit your Sources / disable CDROM, you will not get these errors anymore.
