    Did you replace the CDrom drive on ur old Dell with a samsung DVD player? or did i misunderstand.

    Maybe you should confirm that ur drive plays DVDs with whom u bought it from. Maybe its a case of regions. if the dvd-player is old then the default region mightve gotten changed.

    In device manager,find your drive and right click for a menu,then click uninstall,reboot a have windows load the driver again.Are you using windows XP?If not you may need to find a drivers for your operating system.Also the firmware may need to be flashed in.

    Update;I read some print on your dvd under similar situation where you have moved the drive to another computer.I found a driver that may work.This driver works with Win2000 and reported to work with WinXP.Driver
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
