I'll take that as a no,
In fact the default for most types of media is media player but it doesn't include all of the relevant codex's you require for every type of media by default.
Most manufacturers include this software with their computers/DVDROM's but not always.
The reason I assume it is your codex not being installed is simple, you can play CD's, that means the drive works, media player works, sound card works and speakers work. The only common problem that would cause this is a missing or corrupted codex.
try something for me and let me know if it solves the problem.
Install VLC player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html
Then try to play the DVD using VLC player. If it asks to update itself, let it.
Comment back here once you have tried and let me know how you make out.

You may need to update the software you use to burn disk. Sometimes you can lose the needed drivers to burn your disk. Once you update the software, reboot and try again.
