HOW COME I CAN'T WATCH DVD'S ON MY COMPUTER??????????

  • hey ,
    my name is Marty,
    I signed up on my dads name who paid online through the nose for this dell
    and he's always watching tv and I can't ever seem to watch any dvd's because he's always
    watching his shows , so I tried to watch a dvd on my dell computer and it won't even support the cd
    when i put the dvd in , the computer tells me there is nothing there put a cd in please.
    I tried several times to do this and still it doesn't even acknowledge that a cd is in there .
    How come???????????
    why can't I watch dvd movies on my computer ???????????
    it isn't like I'm gonna burn them I don't do that sort of stuff.
    will somebody explain or tell me what is wrong?????????????
     
    Marty
