XML will help only if the information you want to download is made available in XML format. Its also a big help if the source documents the tags being used.

There are MANY tutorials on the web to get you started:
Here is Sun's tutorial on XML with Java.

I searched and i saw something by name "Magic Script" or "Script Magic" will help me do this. does anyone have any idea abt it? I am posting in the general forum too since i dont know if it is XML related

yes this can be done.. only if those DVD library managers support it.. i'll give you an example.. in the satellite TV world.. it happens that you can download all program information in xml format using XMLTV standard format..
you can google XMLTV term and know more about it.. it is pretty simple to do but needs support from service providers.

Addition to this - If information is in HTML then you need to parse to making XML object and then process.
