    MS-Windows XP professional, SP1 Installed
    HP Pavilion N5290 Laptop

    HP 3500C Scanner installed.

    HP 300 DVD Burner installed.

    Recently I had to reinstall all my software, when my hard drive was replaced. The Media Player 9 has always played DVDs satisfactorly.

    [1] Media Player does not play DVDs.

    [2] Two other Brand X players installed do play DVDs.

    [3] Media Player will play CDs and accesses CD-ROMs.

    What I have tried:

    [1] Uninstalling and reinstalling Media Player 9; Media Player does not play DVDs.

    [2] Hardware Manger is not displaying any problems.
