What do you mean by not reading the disk?

When inserting a disk to the DVD drive, it runs an autorun program if one exists on the disk. By nature autorun will not run again if the disk stays in the drive. If you want to run the content of the disk, you have to execute autorun.exe from Windows Explorer. Let me know if that doesn't answer your question

Put the "System Restore" disk into the drive,
and restart your computer.
Choose to "change boot order" so that the first boot-device is your CD/DVD unit.
Your computer *WILL* boot from the disk in the drive,
allowing you to reinstall Windows.

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

It's time to spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD-writer.
There's no way to "fix" your "half-gassed" DVD-drive.
A technician would charge at least $25 to _look_ at your computer.
Instead, "invest" the $25 in a replacement.

Sata DVD burner

This is happening because the DVD SATA is booting like a first drive instead of the IDE Drive.
Be sure that your SATA drive is connected to a right port on your motherboard.
Go to your bios and into the boot options be sure that the IDE drive boot first than the SATA DVD.
Another way is connecting an adaptor SATA to IDE and connect your SATA DVD Drive as second IDE on your motherboard.

This will be fixing your problem.

Have a great day
Pablo :-)
