I would suspect that your CD laser is bad (CD uses a different laser than DVD), and therefore should be replaced. Here is an ebay search to help you out:

MAIN QUESTION. NO sorry to tell you you need at least a dvd drive to play dvd's DVD - R/RW to burn onto a DVD disc but you are lucky, external DVD drives are relatively cheap now days, just look around online or at walmart my estimate is that you wont pay more than 200 for a dvd-rw drive (external) as far as the value of the computer you are getting i would say currently $200 to a max of $400 value if you were going to sell it and thats asking high. if you didnt pay more tha that then you are ok IF you did i would be asking for your money back as you can go to walmart and get 3 times the computer for 300 bucks. if you need to know more just shoot me an e-mail at [email protected] just let me know in the subject that your real.
Both Dell Part numbers 18THT and 5W299 are 8X DVD-ROM Drive Modules. DPN 18THT is compatible with Latitude C series and DPN 5W299 is compatible with Latitude D series. The two drives have different and incompatible connectors.
Your Latitude C640 is a C Series Latitude. You can therefore not use DPN 5W299.
If you need a DVD drive module, get DPN 18THT or an alternative Latitude C series drive.
