ROM/DVD device won't read DVD's

    I think that I have mistakenly deleted files necessary to operate the DVD
    (read mode). CD-ROM is OK. System check reports that the device is OK, but
    still won't read a DVD. I have new S/W to load, and it is in DVD format.
    Anyone know where I can find drivers for a generic CD-ROM/DVD? The computer
    is a refurbished DELL 2.4 GHz., and has no XP Disc. Of course, the computer
    is out of warranty. I have a disc for another computer with the XP OS, but
    not sure if I can get the files that I need off of this disc or not. Any
    help would be greatly appreciated.

    What OS are you working with? What kind of disks are you trying to read?
    The drivers are Microsoft, but you may be missing the codecs necessary to
    interpret your content.

    The operating system is XP PRO, and the discs that I am trying to read are
    new DVD copies of Street Atlas USA, which I use for mapping programs. Thanks
    for the question.
