Do you mean that you can't play DCS videos or that the drive can't physically read the contents of the disc? Two very different issues. If you can't play DVDs, download and install VLC media player. Otherwise you have a faulty DVD drive.

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.

Mechanical you need to take the drive out and disassemble the casing. I seen one that the CD actully broke into millions of pieces. I was not there to experience the happening but was there to help save the drive.
