Check "Computer" or My Computer and see if the drive is there. If not, reboot the system and go to the System Setup page (hit F2 on the Dell splash screen). Check if the CDROM drive is present under Drive Configuration. If not, reseat the CDROM drive. Remove it from the computer and just put it back in. If you think this is a software issue, backup all your files to a USB flash drive and do an image restore. Hit F8 several times continuously when you see the Dell Splash Screen then select Repair Your Computer. Login on the System Recovery Page. Choose Dell Factory Image Restore. This will bring your computer back to where it started.

Hi!
I assume you are using Windows Vista. To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start , type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue .
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters , and then click Delete .
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters , and then click Delete .
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

Thanks for reading my suggestion and I hope this helps.

You may try with these troubleshooting steps.

These steps are applicable for either Windows XP or Vista OS. But you can perform the same in the Windows 7 OS.

Option 1: Try installing Sony Registry Update for CD/DVD Drives:

Option 2: Try deleting UpperFilters and LowerFilters Registry values as mentioned:
