Re: in dvd problem
You may need an MPEG2 decoder as well as a DVD player program. You're better off buying one because you can get everything you need and it will be reliable that way.
corel.com carries them. There priced very reasonable.
If your computer has a non oem card from ATI or NVidia you can get the decoders and players from their websites as well.

What do you mean download cd's and dvd's? You don't download them, you
simply put them in the drive and play them. If you purchased a music cd
or a movie dvd that you want to play or watch, then just put it in the
drive. The system will recognize it and automatically open Windows
Media Player for you to play it or you can open it yourself if autoplay
is not active.
Exactly what is it that you are trying to do?
If you are talking about putting a blank cd or dvd into the drive to
copy music or a movie to it, that's another story and will take a while
to explain. You will basically need to make sure your CD/DvD drive can
burn CD's or Dvd's. Then you will need some type of burning software
(later versions of Window Media Player will burn).
Click Start/My Computer and look at your devices. if your DvD/CD Drive
is listed look for RW which means rewritable (it can burn or copy). If
it say DVDrw it can read and write dvd's. If it says CDrw it can read
and write cd's. You can also look on the drive door on the computer
where you would place the cd or dvd. If it says Rewritable CDrw (it
can write cd's) or DvDrw (it can write dvd's). If it says ROM (read
only media), that means it can Read Only and not write.
If the drive is rewritable then the software such as Media Player will
allow you to go find what you want to put on the cd or dvd. You have
two ways of putting things in the software to burn or write. You can
copy and paste, or you can drag and drop.
OK, first of all you said you put a blank DvD in the drive. Make sure your dell has a DvD writer. Look on the drawer of the drive and see does it say DvDrw or DvDROM. It has to say Rw for rewritable and not ROM for Read Only Media. Maybe you have a Combo Drive that is DvDrom and CDrw which means it will read both DvD's and Cd's but in can only Write CD's.
If in fact you do have a DvD writer make sure you're not trying to put a Blue Ray disc in the drive.
Lastly, remove the DvD from the drive. Click Start/My Computer. Notice what it brings up as to your DvD Drive. Does it Say DvDrw or just plain ole DvD. DvD means it will only read a DvD.
I had the same problem. I finally got a knowledgeable tech at Gateway who knew that a patch had to be downloaded. I'm sorry but I don't have the link anymore but you might be able to find it in there white papers now that you know that it exists
