Quick question, if there is fuel in the fuel rail, does that mean the fuel pump is working?

yes and no, thier will be fuel there, but it may not be enough pressure

Ok, Thanx. so it goes to say, although its working,it could be doing the job incorrectly(i.e. wrong pressure supply)? So can you fix that problem with out changing the fuel pump but some kind of pressure regulator instead?

could be a regulator, could be the fuel pump, im not 100% familiar with those systems, your best bet would be to take to to a garage somewere and ask them to do a fuel pressure test... if it has low pressure the 1st thing you should do is try to supply 12v directly from the battery to the pump, to check to make sure its not a wiring issue
