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.
