Can you be more specific about which error messages you are getting? This is important because it will tell us whether the laser or motor is burned out, or if you are just being stopped by copy protection.

Samsung dvd rw with octo edge dvd rom says burning failed for dual layer disc

I will presume that you do not have a combo DVD.
If you have a "combo" drive, it doesn't burn any DVDs.

First, has the burner ever burned dual-layer DVD's successfully?
Radio Shack has a laser cleaner ($13). Read & follow the directions. It is an audio CD with a row of brushes. No chemicals involved.

Use Verbatim DVD's, they are the best. Samsung is also a top brand.

I have a gateway with windows xp and my dvd rom won't read dvd-r

it could be that your dvd drive is only able to read dvd discs not to burn them, if its a combo drive its very likely a cd burner that can read dvd discs.

if you send me the brand and model or the full name / details of the drive I could check on it.

Dvd/cd-rw combo does not record

You may have what is called a combo can play and burn cds but can only play dvds, not burn them. Look at the face plate on the drive and see what is written on it. If it has the following:
Recordable Drive = CD Burner
DVD = DVD Player
RW & DVD = DVD Burner

If recordable drive and DVD is on the drive but no RW, chances are its a combo drive. Keep us posted.

Data are not shown

most older drives can't read multi session... you need to have a drive installed to be able to read multi session burn. there is no software tweak that can fix this... you need to replace the drive. otherwise burn the data as single session.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive

ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
