I inserted a game (DVD) into my DVD drive and it says "no disc inserted, please insert the original DVD."

Just for fun I tried putting in some DVD movies and it was not able to play those either.

In the past both DVD games and movies would autorun without any trouble.

I have an XPS M170

Any idea why it's not recognizing the DVDs or what I can do about it?

Is there some software I might have accidentally deleted or something?

What does Device Manager say about the drive? Recognises it ok or shows a problem?
And what version of Windows?

This maybe the cause (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060). This can happen if you've installed some roxio, or any disk image program (for burning)
