Dvd drive will only play DVD movies

Hello,
My DVD drive on my laptop will only play DVD movies, it won't recognise any other disc cd or DVD. I have put another drive in it and the same problem. I think there is a conflict somewhere. Can anyone help please

  1. When you put, for example, a music CD and go into My Computer and look at the drive, do you see any files, or do you get an error?
  2. You might try this for vista, other os fixes are available.

    No, I do not see any files. It doesn't show any disc. I am running XP. I did manage to get a DVD data disc to work.
