Hello jpptalbot.
You can install the CDRW on a free IDE channel (which is not being used by any devices) and there is no need of using a jumper in this case.

Have an LG REWRITER MOD GSA-H22L AND AM WANTING TO INSTALL but have no instruction manual and am not sure if jumper is correct for master and there is a 3 wire cable that was not on are used by my old unit...

I replaced my old drive in my Windows XP PC with a used LG GSA-H22L.
Mine is a setup as a Slave on the Secondary IDE Port.
I found the manual in PDF format using Google (but I can't remember where?).
So, I put a copy up on my Microsoft Windows Sky Drive site for you to view and/or download it here:
You should find everything you need to install your GSA-H22L drive in this manual.
BTW - that 3 wire cable is probably for hooking up the drive audio to your PC's sound card/circuit.

My cdrw burner is not functioning

Pull and replace the optical media device

This may not be the easiest chore you ever have as with Dell, their proprietary techniques are often called for in the absence of a technician who knows these techniques.

Service at Dell facilities if available or preferred.

Hitachi -LG GCC-4481B DVD CD-RW

If the firmware was never updated, it can cause this.
A tool like Nero infotool will show the drive firmware version or you can scan your registry for "4481" and locate an entry in <HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\DeviceClasses>
that shows the drive model and a numeric fw version.

You can go to HP
or to Dell
and use their firmware update.
