Virtually all CDs /DVDs players and writers will use the same windows drivers in XP. they are in the windows\system32\dirvers\ or windows\system32\DRIVERS \ folder and are:-





and in the windows\system32 folder


try device manager update driver and install these files. to get your CD/DVD working again.

It could be simply that your DVD Rom has failed and you need to get a new one. DVD RW are very cheap to buy these days.
