  3. remove the drivers for the dvd drive from the device manager as well and restart the system
  4. try playing with different softwares.

After formatting my dell vostro 1510 DVD drive will not read or play DVD discs

If you reinstalled Windows from the Dell-provided "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, you should be able to play DVD disks.

If you reinstalled Windows from some "other" Windows disks, you should be able to view the files/folders on any DVD-disk, but you will be lacking the software to properly "decode" those files, and to "play" the content.

Dell n5010 dvd drive does not recognise dvd but will play cd's

Does this happen on all DVDs and CDs or only on some DVDs?
If this is happens on all DVDs then this drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If it only occurs on some DVDs then check the region code on the DVD player and the region code on the DVD, the region codes must match.
To play DVDs from any region the player needs to be a region free player or you need to install a region free program on your notebook/computer.
For details on making your DVD player region free, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Cant write dvds

It sounds more like your burning laser went out. DVD and CD Roms use two seperate lasers. One for reading and one for writing. I would check with the manufacturer to see if it is still under warranty to have it replaced

First shut down any othe apps that are runnig. Even disable norton AV if it is running while watching a move. Second do a disk clean up from the system tools menu, third make sure windows is controlling virtual memory. Finally get a DVD playe like Power DVD. It is much better at playing DVD's than media player that can be a real pig.
