1st check that you have some disk space so that the PC can "breath" .  Try removing any old images ot temporary files that may exist.  http://www.ccleaner.com is a great utility for removing junk.
Then defrag the drive  http://www.defraggler.com is a good free utility.
Next run spybot http://www.spybot.de to remove any malware.
WeListen2You's suggestion is good, but it may also be worth looking in add/remove programs and removing anything that is in there that you do not need.  http://www.pcdecrapifyer.com is a good tool.

It reads and writes normal cds but displays an error message when i try to burn dvds,what could be the problem and how can it be fixed?


If your DVD burner is an old one then the Laser could be going out in which it is not powerful enough to burn Discs anymore but it can still read them. Can it read DVDs?

The more advanced the media is the more likely it can't read them in a older Player. DVDs would be hardest to burn or even read.

If this is the case the DVD burner must be replaced. They are cheap and I would recommend newegg.com. A typical DVD burner is $30.

I cannot watch dvds on my windows xp only cds


I'd be sure it does accept DVD. The face plate on the CD/DVD drive typically have the logos printed or stamped on it of the supported formats. Look for the DVD logo. Following link shows example internal desktop drive. Logo in center of drawer is for DVD.

Also try other DVDs to be sure you didn't have a bad one.
