Cant write dvds

It sounds more like your burning laser went out. DVD and CD Roms use two seperate lasers. One for reading and one for writing. I would check with the manufacturer to see if it is still under warranty to have it replaced

Windows media player

Windows XP does not come with the proper software to play DVDs. All major brands of pcs come with a piece of software called a DVD decoder. Once the DVD decoder is installed windows media player can play DVDs again. This software will be on your application recovery disks from your manufacturer. If you do not have these disks you can purchase them from the company who built your PC or you can purchase a DVD decoder software such as the ones found here. If you don't want to purchase one you can try a different program such as the VLC Media player to play your DVDs. VLC is a free download.
