Replaced Hard Drive now refuses to read any install disk

1. Replaced 1Tb Seagate drive with the same model, it went very smoothly

2. Will not read install disc, I have tried a 10.6 and 10.7 disc. It would pull up the 10.6 disc when option was held down as a boot option, when selected would do nothing. It displays a blinking folder when no disc is present.

Is this due to the discs or the computer? (old os for example)

Is this a good question?

When you booted from the 10.6 Retail installation disk or the original system installation disk, did you use Disk utilities to format the drive before trying to install a system?

No I was unable to use Disk utilities, the disk would not even be recognized and begin to run.
