criddi, it is best if you uninstall and reinstall or update the drivers of your CD/DVD drive, you may also need to place the drive on another IDE port from the inside of your computer.

Gateway 420gr the HL DT ST DVDRAM GSA 4120B reads and burn CDs /cannot read DVDs inc Restore DVD

A technician would charge at least $25 to _look_ at your computer.
Instead, "invest" the $25 in a replacement.
