The reason behind that is because the CD ROM cannot read DVDs. If you want to play or install DVD based programs you need to replace your CD ROM with a DVD-ROM or DVD-RW. You also can purchase an external DVD ROM if you dont want take that CD ROM from its place.

it sounds like you need a new dvd rom,
the drive that shows up in my computer can still be seen,
as you click on it , try to notice the sound of the rom,
sometimes you can use rubbing alcohol on the eye, or a cd cleaner can get it back
Do follow steps, 1) change your DVD disk :- if it's work, don't worry about the driver. 2) go to Device Manager & check the DVD/CD ROM driver's property, check weather it has been disabled. 3) change your OS or Upgrade current OS 4) if above steps are not worked, then you have to bring your laptop to a service provider...
if you are in warranty period don't remove any parts of it, they will replaced a another DVD driver
You need to use the software to play DVD movies. Try using windows media player to start the DVD or if the computer came with DVD playing software then try it. You can also check the Dell site and download the latest driver package and install the drivers. It might be missing the dvd rom driver. When you put in the DVD does it autoplay and ask you what software to use to open the disc? You can also go into the control panel and check the device manager. Check and see if the dvd rom is a problem device and/or try to update driver for the device. Have you tried different dvds? Maybe it is having a problem with just that DVD. Some DVD's will not play in a computer but will play in a DVD player.
