You can do one of two things:

1)Re-install the correct drivers for your DVD or:

2)Install a codec pack to allow Windows Media Player to play DVD's

Personally, I would do both.

hmm .. try these things .. (if DVD drive is working properly) ..
Go to windows update and get the latest media player and then reconnect and get the security update.
while connected online place DVD in drive .. tell it to play with windows media player .. it should go get the codecs needed to play and hopefully you'll be enjoying your movie.
if it doesn't auto play then right click and say open with windows media.
Hope this helps
Peter
