DVD Recognition problem

  Stealthcat 13:34 31 Jan 2004

i recently bought a second hand laptop with an interchangeable dvd/floppy disk drive however when a dvd is inserted, the data can be read in explorer but will not play movies using playback software, also in the properties window it says its a cd-rom drive not a dvd drive. Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this problem?
