Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
Had the same problem with my Dell 2400. Used it four years and never tried to read DVD although they claimed both drives would read DVD and one would write them. The computer would call them DVD/CD/CD R, BUT Dell lied when they sold the system and neither drive would read or play DVD and was not a DVD drive. Replaced the standard drives with REAL DVD drives and it works fine. Dell is now under investigation for false advertising, beware.

Have you tried several DVDs? Maybe it doesn't read some types of DVDs.
