Try this, but be very careful while editing the registry.

Click start, run, type regedit

Navigate to this registry key:

Delete the "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" entries.

If you have more than one key with that number, use the first one.

Can I play store bought dvds on my new memorex slim external cd/dvd writer? The box says yes but when I install, it just shows the movie name and won't do anything

If it is just a writer then no but I have never heard of just a writer and mostly they are designated a reader/writer when they should be able to read whatever they are capable of writing - if the computer has the right software installed that is.

It could be you need to instal a suitable media player or dvd player software.

If you want to auto play a DVD, then go to Control Panel. (type in Control Panel in search) Then go to Hardware & Sound-AutoPlay. You can configure the DVD options under 'DVD's'
If you want to boot from the CD/DVD you need to go into your BIOS settings to change the boot order from 1st device (which is usually your hard drive) to CD/DVD drive.
PC's differ in accessing the BIOS and you may need to press F2 or escape as the PC is starting.

If your CD-writer previously work, and now does not work, i.e., cannot "read" a "blank" disk, it's time to spend $40 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer drive.

On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.
