    Thanks for that but it's an internal dvd/cd r-w so there is no data cable to change. I suppose I should have explained that it's an acer extensa 2300 notebook.

Hello,
mean that cannot play DVD movie, ahh you need a codecs, try to google the DVD codecs and download it and install.
if not use, VLC player and some DVD player that recognize DVD codecs. you can google also.
if won't resolve then, try.
try clean it with DVD cleaner, or maybe at loss the DVD reader is out of order.

Plz try by cleaning the dvd with the dvd lens cleaner, if the problem persist then try by changing the data cable, if everything fails you try with new dvd rom.

With a standard windows install, that did not come from the factory, you can not set up a "recovery partition" that functions as the original did. One solution you can try is to image the fresh install to an external drive.
