the installation of the webcam shouldnt have affected the drive atall. Try uninstalling the webcam first of all, and then see if the DVD drive is working again. It may be a coincidence that it has failed, at the same time as installing the webcam.
Something you can try if you have windows XP:
To check the health of the DVD drive, go to start>control panel>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer.
click on "system" from the list on the left of the window, then click "type" to group all the events, errors, and warning. check to see if you have any messages such as "CDROM" Device CDROM0 has a bad block. (something like this). Thats always a sign that your cd drive is on its way out.
If the CD drive still works but just cant play movies (but can read all other files fine) Then i'd try using different software to play the files. Try VLC player from videolan.org, which plays all file types.
I hope this helps
