Your Gateway has either a:

Toshiba (TSST) TS-L532U
or
Hitachi/HLDS GWA-4082N

You can check the device manager for the model of your laptop.

I have good luck at:
Tigerdirect or compusa.

You can call their sales office and give them your model and order it from cheaper than Gateway.

Download cd driver for a gateway nv54 laptop


Your operating system shouldn't need a new driver for that. CD drives are recognized configured automatically. You can try cleaning the laser lens on the CD Drive with a CD/DVD laser lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't work then you'll need to replace the drive.

What is the difference between mx3231 mx3228?


The screens are probably interchangeable. The two laptops have the same size screens, 14-inch Widescreen Ultrabright WXGA TFT. The major difference between them is that the MX3231 has a CD writer/DVD-ROM optical drive. The MX3228 has a dual-layer DVD writer. See https://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Q106/MagicLC/1009130sp2.shtml and http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Q106/MagicLC/1008831sp2.shtml for the specs of both of these Gateway notebooks.

I hope this helps.

The DVD writer doesn't recognize that there is a


Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.
