There is a driver update for dvd at dell support. Also the dell latitude won't play a DVD if you don't have the software for the DVD player like " WinDVD" That's why it would play CD's and not DVD's. Look for your Tag number on your Dell Laptop and go to http://search.dell.com/results.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&cat=sup&k=windvd&rpp=12&p=1&subcat=dyd&rf=all&nk=f&sort=K&ira=False&~srd=False&ipsys=False&advsrch=False&~ck=anav
You might still be able to get the Dell's version of WinDVD for free

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 call...be 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.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Dell latitude c640 laptop with cd dvd drive wont play dvd


Check the front of the drive for a DVD logo - if it doesn't have the logo, then it can't read or play DVDs.
If the DVD logo is present on the drive, then you still need a program with Windows in order to play back a DVD video. I'd probably use something along the line of WinDVD from Corel (previously InterVideo).
Good luck, and please rate this answer if you feel it has helped you!!

My dvd plays cd but not dvds


Try using a good quality dvd cleaner first. If that does not fix the problem then it is an optics issue for the dvd & it would be cheaper to replace the drive than to try & have it fixed. Hope this helps.

Dell XPS 1300 Cd rom problem


This is a CD drive mechanical problem. All CD/DVD drives have built in error checking for mechanical failures. When you insert the CD/DVD, it tries to grab and seat the disc, then attempts to spin it up and then read it. If the grab and seat function fails for any reason, the drive will eject the tray so you can try again. You should contact Dell support and get the drive replaced. Has the drive ever worked? or did it just stop working one day?
