Several things to consider

The XP operating system suggests an older machine,so is the drive a burner? Has it burned previously? XP itself does not handle DVD,you need a dedicated burner programming for that.

Download/install CD burner XP Pro.

Maybe the drive has died. They are cheap to buy,simple to install on a desktop,tricky on a laptop.

Lastly the normal 'slot' for a CD/DVD is 'D' or 'E' a How come yours is 'J'?

Good point SparkyJack, I'd forgotten that XP doesn't burn DVD natively.
