Here's how a tech solved my DVD not being detected on my XPS M1530:

1. Go to Start.

2. In the Search window at the bottom of Start, enter   regedit    to open the  Registry Editor.

3. Find:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

4. Delete upper and lower filters (or just upper or just lower).

5. Reboot.
