2)open "my computer" and look at your dvd drives
3)does the drive just sit and spin for a while and do nothing or does it display any info when you look at "my computer"

Please look at the faceplates on the drives. Do they have the DVD symbol on them? I'm trying to find out if they are indeed dvd drives and not just normal cd drives.
Click on START-->RUN and type in B]devmgmt.msc[/B] and hit the ENTER key or click OK.
Click on dvd/cd drives to expand. Tell me what it shows there.
for example, on mine it shows: TSSTcorp CDRW/DVD TSL462c

It doesn't say dvd on the faceplate. it says compact disc rewritable and compact disc. the thing you told me to type in says HL-DT-ST CD-ROM GCR-8481B and the other one says HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8400B
In order to play a DVD on your computer, you must have a drive capable of reading them. Neither of these drives are capable of reading DVDs.
One of them can read and write CDs while the other can only read CDs.
