Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

I cannot play a DVD on my Dimension 2400. I can

\015 I cannot play a DVD on my Dimension 2400. I can play CDs. Is that all it will play? I have not played a DVD yet, but have been trying since I got a new monitor. Does my 5-year old Dimension just not have a DVD drive? The D: drive just says CD-RW on Windows Explorer. I guess I am as dumb as I sound. Please advise so I don't keep looking for drivers and other magical solutions to an obvious lack of the proper hardware. Thanks [email protected] \015\012\015
