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.

yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.

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.

Make sure that you have it set up in the cmos. Thats the first thing you need to do to ensure that it can be read via windows. If its not recognized by the board, windows wont see it either. When the system starts up .. select F2 key to access the cmos. Under system it should provide you with a list of devices installed on your computer. If you do not see your sony drive listed, then you will need to add it. Scroll through the list and determine if it is a master or slave and if it is a primary or secondary device connection. If you have it set up on the same cable as your harddrive, you will need to set the jumper on the CDRW as a slave so that there is no conflict between the two. Did you install all the drivers for the drive into windows as well??? I hope this helps. If you require further assistance, please dont hesitate to ask.
