Slimtype DVD A DS8A8SH DVD Burner problem

Got a Gateway all in one with slimtype dvd burner, and since I've had it... and I had done a factory restore, the dvd drive won't read a data disk or burn one, but I can play a movie!!! Windows tells me the best device driver is all ready installed. What could be my problem, maybe needs updated firmware??? Running Windows 8, with startmenu 8... just through that in cause I don't really like the way left those of us without a touchscreen just a hangin' in the wind... Sorry... Really appreciate your help

SOURCE: my lg (gh22ns30) dvd+rw burner will not read a dvd or dvd rom.

You can go to the control panel, then to device manager, click on disk drives. Make sure you have the right one and then delete it. Restart the computer and it should "find" it and install it, that is if it still works.
