    Try uninstalling/reinstalling the drive, and also try to update your firmware.

    how can you help someone who doesnt know his specs. goto the website of your manufacturer and get the specs. Also you can go to control panel, system, hardware and then device manager. You will see a list of your hardware.

    i said rom drives as i don't know if you have a cd rom burner, a dvd rom burner or a combo drive that burns cds & plays dvds. check your manual for that info or on faceplate of the rom drive

    according to your info on the drive is only a cd writer so can't burn or play dvds. get a cd/dvd diskcleaner to clean the laser lens on the drive
