From the driver, it looks like it is a dvd reader.
Try to delete the filters from the registry by performing the following steps.
If u have win XP, click start and then click run and then type 'regedit' and then hit ok.
If u have win Vista, click start and then type 'regedit' in t he Start Search field and then hit enter.
Once you get the registry editor screen, click on the + sign next to computer and then + next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHIINE and then + next to CURRENTCONTROLSET and then + next to CONTROL and then + next to CLASS.
Under Class, you will find a lot of folder in sequence with numbers and letters.
This time click on the folder itself and on the right side of the screen, u will find some entries.
Pls look for either 'Upper Filters' or Lower Filters' and right click on them and delete them.
Close registry editor and restart the computer. After restart, the dvd's should get detected.
If this doesnt work, then download the original drivers or any updates from the manufacturers website,

this may or may not help, try taking out the cmos battery out (looks like a watch battery) and leave for a few minutes then replace, this will reset the bios.

3) The device manager will list all of your hardware that is on your computer.If you see a yellow? mark oryellow ! mark next to your DVD/CD rom drive,simply click on it then click Repair. It also may tell you that it is not recognozied. Follow the directions.
4) If you do not see this in your Device Manager go to Add Hardware in your Control Panel which is next to your Add/Remove Programs icon. Click on Add Hardware and it will scan for all hardware.
** This should take care of your problem.If not then somehow the actual connection in your tower has come loose. If so you must open your tower and look for a loose wire going to your DVD/CD rom drive.
*** Please let me know if this corrects your problem.Simply email me(Phil) at: email@example.com

Go to Dell's support site and to their driver page. Put your model number in the box for a search and a page with your drivers will appear, download the drivers for your model and do a re-install of them. download them to a temp folder and when they are downloaded, double click and they will self install, put off rebooting until you install them all.
