Well start with the easy things

First look at the Data Side of the Disc and see if it is dirty, scratched or otherwise blocking the Laser.

if it is gently clean the Disc. If it isn't and the Disc plays on another Device open the Device Manager in your OS and make sure that you actually have a Optical Drive listed in there. If you do make sure that there are no conflicts occurring by right clicking on the Optical Drive Listing and selecting Proprieties in the Drop Down Menu. In the next window to open then select the Proprieties Tab and make sure that those settings are correct.

As I'm not quite sure what is actually happening here make sure that you actually have a DVD Drive and not just a CD Drive. Some of these Old CD Drives can get messed up when you insert a DVD which they are unable to read.

If nothing shows up by now replace the drive/s and try again.
