Trying this should sort it, if not a drive fault:- Right click My computer>properties>device manager>hardware, then on CD/DVD devices line, click '+' sign then right click on your CD drive and click uninstal. Re-start your notebook and Windows should find it again and install drivers automatically. Try a cd in see if any better. Please rate solution

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

The drive is detected but it does not appear to read cds or dvds inserted. I can hear the drive spinning.

try this http://www.fixya.com/support/r3779147-restore_acer_portable_original_factory
if no go, see if you can boot to the drive using an Windows CD or the Dell resource CD, if it will not read or boot, Boot to BIOS, ensure it is identified there and try again, if still no go, then replace the drive

Playing a DVD-R

Your should have 24x CD-RW/DVD (Sony) with your model, if drive is reading well you may be missing DVD rendering software try Power DVD or WINDVD.but still you can only read with the current dive you have its a combo drive that can only read DVD and burn CD's, Recording DVD is not possible.
