    Does the DVD ROM have power and the light comes on the drive? Can you open the DVD ROM tray and put in a disk, but the computer doesn't read it?

    Also, check in My Computer on XP or on Vista, Computer in the Start menu and is the DVD ROM listed?

My hp pavilion a305w will not let me play dvds

First of all you'll need a DVD-Rom Player. If you go to my computer and you see the drives you have. Drive C and

DVD-Rom station or CD-rom Station.
If it's not listed you don't have a DVD-rom player and you can never play dvd's unless you work with images and image drive software like daemon tools or alcohol 120%.

If you do have a DVD-rom player you can play dvd's with Cyberlink Powerdvd or BS-player. Even with Windows Media Player.

It depends on the operating system you have.

Hope this was helpfull. If questions i am happy to answer.
