1. do you have a DVD-ROM in the laptop? identify!
2. is the DVD readable?

you either don't have a DVD-ROM or the DVD was written incorrectly.

If it used to work OK then test another dvd like a store bought dvd. If that fails then consider a new drive or at least do a restore point to a time when the dvd worked.

drives fail like that. can use one and not the other.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
