Media Player 9.0 and Liteon SHOW 1633S Drive Description

Ok - newbie here - installed new Liteon, Nero OEM and upgraded to WMP 9.0 on a WIN98 SE machine - was able to copy and burn a CD using NERO, and able to copy a CD in WMP BUT when I click on COPY TO CD in WMP, the drive description is either in Chinese or Japanese and WMP shuts down.

I have absolutely no clue what’s going on. HELP, please!
