Video card drivers for windows xp sony Vaio

Before anyone asks why I have this machine....it's just a 
given.  Suddenly, my DVD player won't read any dvds claiming 
protection issues or a disconnect with my video card.  I am guessing 
I need an updated driver.  Is there an open source one for windows 
xp?  Thanks in advance for your consideration and kindness, jlt

There are free/open source software video players like VLC which might help. In
any case, spi-general is not a technical support mailing list. Instead, it's
meant for discussions related to Software in the Public Interest (SPI), which
is a non-profit organization which provides various services to the free
software community. VLC can be found at http://www.videolan.org/ and has
community-based no-cost support options that would be better suited to your
goal of getting working DVD playback than this mailing list. Thank you.

Good luck,

- Jimmy Kaplowitz, SPI Secretary

P.S. - If you want more information on SPI, http://www.spi-inc.org/ is our
website, or feel free to use this mailing list to ask such questions, or to
email me directly.

THe current CMS (Plone) most certainly does not allow that. Normal users
are not allowed to create any python code. Managers are allowed to
create python scripts via a web interface, but they are executed in a
restricted environment which does not allow any filesystem access, nor
anything else that might be a security risk.
