start-->computer-->is the DVD drive showing up there?

Have you tried several different discs?

Windows 7 and Vista, both use a default OS driver to recognize DVD drives. As long as you didn't have any issue while upgrading (you would've got a notice that it couldn't read a specific driver), then windows 7 shouldn't be the issue.

Where did you get the driver that you updated it with?

Start-->control panel-->system and security-->device manager-->right click on the DVD drive, and uninstall it-->restart-->it will reinstall on restart.
