Try kaffeine.

Can you play from your linux drives, is this just from the windows drives?

If its only the windows partitions you cannot play from, you may want to check your permissions to access data on those drives.

The "xmms-mp3" package allows xmms to play MP3s. MPlayer and VLC are video (and audio) players. You can get all these from either the Livna or the Dag/FreshRPMS (RPMforge) third-party repos, depending on your political preferences, or you can try to find packages from the official software sites.
