I've never tried this but it might make interesting reading:

There is no DOS (as we knew it) on XP or Windows 7 and it would seem a little odd to install it. There is only a DOS emulator "Command Prompt" but that runs from within Windows anyhow. From XP onwards, Windows is its own Disk Operating System. The old thing we called DOS, upon which Windows ran in the Win98 days, no longer exists.

Maybe it would be worth replacing your disk drive if that's the stumbling block.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

What type of files are your trying to burn, IE. music or video? Is your burner a CD/DVD burner or just a CD burner?

Files are types including songs, video and documents. I used DVD RW in the laptop.

Get yourself some real burning software. There's plenty of freebies available, try FileHippo.com.

Agreed, your not going to be able to burn a data disc with different types of files from Media Player.

The DVD RW may not work in your stand alone player or in your car. As Derek suggested, use DVDR instead.

Yes I tried to get nero software.But they are not free. I again tried with window7 software. After repeated attempts, some how it worked. Two CDs I could burn. But again there is problem. The drive is not detecting the cd. It seems it is not a software problem.
Actually my main aim was to reinstall win7. Because presently my C drive has got only 12 GB capacity, which is not sufficient for win7. I wanted to repartition and reinstall. But the problem is, to repartition, I need to boot from CD and my system does not boot from cd. When I checked the bios, CD ROM option is not available for boot devices. Option is required to be given in respect of 1st boot device, 2nd boot device etc. In place of CD ROM "Disabled" is mentioned. I do not know how to change this word "Disabled" to CD ROM. Four options are available for boot device under advance setup which are :- 1st Floppy disk, Disabled, SM-ST3802110A, PM-HL-DT GCE-8.
Under Standard CMOS Setup, following are available:
Primary IDE master CD/DVD Rom
Primary IDE slave Not detected
Seondary IDE master Hard disk
Secondary IDE slave Not detected
S-ATA1 Not detected
S-ATA2 Not detected
Since booting from CD is not possible, I wanted to try to install winXP, where partitioning option is available in the setup process itself. Once partition is done, I can very well install win7 either over XP or otherwise. But since win7 is already present it is not allowing an older version(XP) to be installed.
Now my option is to some how format C through DOS and install the software. But for this also I may need a bootable floppy disk. And I am not sure if my floppy disk drive is working, because I don't see the lights of floppy disk drive blinking while booting. Though in the explorer both Floppy drive and CD drive are displaying.
