Give this a try, if no change, the dvd rom may have to be replaced:- Try My computer>properties>devicemanager>hardware tab, then click on the '+' sign on the DVD/CDROM drives line. Right click your DVD then click uninstall. Restart your pc and let Windows find it again, see if it sorts itself out. If it's getting on a bit try a lens cleaner also.

NEW gcc-h23n will not read anything

If not reading DVD is a pattern (it won;t read ANY DVD, no matter if it's a burned one or an original movie) then the lens is dead. I'm afraid you'll have to go get a new one (new drives are very cheap, usually around 25-30$)

I'm very late to your question, but the problem is that this drive doesn't burn DVDs (i.e., it was not designed to do that). It's a CD-RW, DVD-ROM (read only).

Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.
