Answers :

From what I have found, that system should come with a DVD-RW drive by default.

  1. Check device manager, see if the drive is detected by Windows as a DVD type drive.
  2. \015\012
  3. If the drive is ID'd as a DVD drive, but will not browse a DVD movie in MY COMPUTER then there is a failure of the DVD optics of the drive and it needs to be replaced.
  4. \015\012
  5. If you can browse a DVD, but not play one, then you most likely need a DVD codec installed to read DVDs. Search google for the K-Lite Codec pack.
  6. \015\012
  7. If you are trying to burn to DVD media, ensure you have a DVD buring software installed as XP has no native DVD burn capability.
