HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N ATA Device doesn't work

That's most likely your upper/lower filters, or drivers acting up.
Try drivers first, as they are easier and faster to fix. Go to device manager under system properties, and uninstall the device and reinstall it.
If it doesn't work delete the upper and lower filters:
Press windows and R keys type in "regedit" and press enter

double click on "computer" on the new window that came up
double click on "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"
double click on "SYSTEM"
double click on "CurrentControlSet"
double click on "Control"
double click on "Class"
double click on "{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

I can't print label to cd dvd from my dvd unit

Before you can use a lightscribe facility, you must have 3 things, which are, A DVD Drive thats has a lightscribe capability/function, a lightscribe software, and a lightscribe compatible CDDisk.
From what I can see, your drive is not capable, or does not support lightscribe functionality. I tried to check everything about your system model and I discovered that the capability of your DVD Drive is this :
  • Writable DVD formats: DVD-R (6x, DL [double layer]), DVD-RW (6x), DVD+R (DL [double layer]), DVD-RAM
  • CD formats: CD-R (24x), CD-RW (16x)
Which means your DVD Drive does not support Lightscribe facilities.
You can also check everything about your system from this link :

Hope this helps you out.

My cd/dvd rom no longer reads or burns

The laser that reads (or "burns") has failed.
Spend $30 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.
