All you can do is install the older BIOS. Newer ones may refuse to charge third-party batteries.
What you need is the program described in the first set of links at Dell I910 Mini/Vostro A90 USB Key Drive flashBIOS Utility
The DVD issue may be insufficient power. See if your drive can be powered separately (not from a USB port on the Mini 9.)
