First Remove it from desktop. And reconnect the SATA on other SATA Port and start the PC and check it in BIOS , is it detecting ?
if yes then check it in MY COMPUTER also. otherwise check with amother SATA cable and if it is not detecting with another SATA cable then ur dvd drive have some proble.

SOURCE: Problem with Inspiron 530S Desktop Reading CD's

If your computers are relatively old then they may not be able to burn CD's or read CD's that were burned. A new CD/DVD burner is relatively inexpensive and easy to install.

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

How to play a cd


Hello,

Usually the DVD drive or the CD drive has a very small button on the front side of the Drive, if you see a button press it, the tray will come out and you will be able to put the cd on the tray and than press that button again it will take the cd in and will play for you.

However if you feel that difficult, try doing this,
simply go to MY COMPUTER, there you can see your dvd-drive or cd-drive, you can right click on the drive and click on "eject" it will eject the tray just like a normal dvd or cd player and you can insert the disc to play.

if there is anything else i can help you with please let me know.

Thank you.
