Just hit the button on the CD drive and it will pop open.

Put in a DVD and close the drive.

Wait a few seconds and it will give you options.

Select "play with Windows Media Player" and you're done.

Installed HP DVD drive into Dell desktop and used the software that came with it. The movie will only play on the software that came with it and it has no sound.

Try downloading and installing this DVD player kit for Media Player

My dell studio laptop (one month old) has problems playing dvds

It sounds like you have eliminated a media player problem.

Here are some more things you could try:

Disable your antivirus when playing the movie.

Have Dell replace CD/DVD drive. I got a bad drive in my new Latitude and they replaced it. It was a long phone prepared.

It could be overheating. Make sure you have good air flow under the notebook. They make notebook coolers which you can find with a web search.

Windows media player cannot detect my dvds in the dvd rom player. i have windows vista

Open "My Computer".
Insert a CD-disk into the drive, while holding-down the LEFT-SHIFT key.
Does the label under the CD-icon change?
Remove the CD-disk.
Does the label under the CD-icon change?
Insert a DVD-disk into the drive, while holding-down the LEFT-SHIFT key.
Does the label under the CD-icon change?
Remove the DVD-disk.

If no changes in the icon, after the above, it's time to spend $40 to replace the "dead" drive with a new CD/DVD writer.

Replacing a cd drive

The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try to download Free player software and Burning software

When I play a dvd on my laptop, there is only sound and no picture

First: is your cd drive an actual DVD drive? and which media player are you using? you may need the "codecs" installed for playing dvds. if you download the Divx Player, this may fix your problem.
