Very likely missing the codec files necessary for DVD. theses files come with the DVD player software. If it worked ok before, first try using system restore and select a date when it once worked. If it never worked, then try re-installing the software.

Buy a CD Optics Cleaner disc. It has bristles that clean the optics inside the computer DVD player. Make sure your sound drivers are up to date.

Can't get Dell Desktop to recognize cd/dvd on D: drive

With any computer this is a question that must be answered by those that provide the driver software. Like the number above (Dimension 3100) you should begin your search here=> Dimension 3100 Drivers that is if you have not altered the driver by putting a different player in the slot. What you need to do is test the drive using the Dell diagnostics. The procedure can be found in the CD/DVD FAQ. Run the "read test". You'll need to insert various disc types during the test. This came from Dell Forums. Click Here=> Dell Forums/Osprey and Here=> Search Results for "Dimension 3100 DVD Driver"
Hope this helps, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Unclean disk / frezzing

The laser is starting to go bad in your dvd drive. You can either replace the laser if you know how to open up the dvd drive, or just replace the whole drive. You can get them off of Ebay.
