You don't need drivers for optical drives for XP, but you need drivers for the notebook. Have you installed all the inspiron's drivers and utilities, mainly chipset etc? Download all the drivers and utilities for XP for your notebook from the dell site (or use the driver CD if you got one with the PC) and install them.

Try here to get most of the drivers for your notebook first, then check if the DVD can be detected or not.
