:) Well the DVD player did work, i know windows has updated and last time I restored to an earlier date this fixed the problem , I tried this time and could not get the calender to set it back a month or so, no I don't use the DVD player much but it won't recognise a disk at all, I tried going to dell and downloading the program again but I don't really know what I am doing :) so thought I would ask here.
Thanks

Optical drives don't need any extra drivers. Windows take care of it.

One of these may help:
1. Uninstall the drive through Device Manager.
Restart computer. The drive will be automatically reinstalled.
or...
2. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
Restart computer.
or...
3. Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.
Restart computer.
or...
4. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.
