You can buy that type of hardware anywhere since it is standard for all desktop. Your current drive is IDE meaning that the data cable on it is an IDE type.
Go to your local computer store and ask for a DVD writer IDE, since there is really no price difference now for a combo or dvd writer drive, it will be like 10 $ more for the writer. I live in canada so if you are in the US could be less here a DVD writer is around 35 $ at a computer shop.

Here is the spec of your computer just in case :

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

Try to use cd cleaner to clean the lens, if this doesnot work, this means your lens is died, change the DVD Rom.

My drive wont read or anything


Go here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_CEL_1100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid

Select what operating system you have (xp or vista) then scroll down to where it says "CD/DVD" and choose your specific cd-rom drive model.

Download the firmware and run it. It should function after that.

(Also if you don't know your Cd-Rom drive model, right click on My Computer> Properties> Hardware Tab> Device Manager> Scroll down to DVD/CD-ROM drives and check out the model number.) Hope this helps! :)

Dell Dimension E510- Trouble Reading DVD/DVD-Rom


open the pc and check the IDE cable and power cable for this drive if you only have 1 drive then the jumper should be on master . CD-rom drive and DVD-rom drive should connect to master on the jumper, CD-RW and DVD-RW should connect to slave on the jumper that if you have 2 drives on your pc. If you still have problem after you checked all these cable and jumper connection than problem maybe inside the drive check it open the drive to see if there is nothing stuck inside the drive and clean the laser light.

My cd/dvd rom no longer reads or burns


The laser that reads (or "burns") has failed.
Spend $30 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Dell e510 cd dvd rw not working


Try going into your Device manager start right click on my computer click on properties then click hardware tab. Under this tab click device Manager. Under disc drives find the drive that you are having problems with and right click on it. Then try to update drivers. If this dose not work do the same thing but this time uninstall the drive. After it uninstalls go to your controll pannel and click on add hardware. It should find and reinstall the cd rom and it's associated files and hopefully work once again.
