Is it showing in the bios? Check that the cable is attatched properly and that the jumper is in right position. Is it a new one or old one thats just stopped workin?

L305D-S5930 dvd wont burn documents to a dvd disc

You need a program, like nero.
if that doesn't work then put a DVD in the drive & see if the computer picks it up in the my computer.
the first thing that goes in a CD/DVD-RW drive is the DVD heads, thats if your drive is a CD/DVD-RW.
Have a look on the front of the drive tray, if it say CD-RW DVD ROM then it doesn't burn DVD's it only plays them.

My cd drive will read cds but wont read as a burner

Not all Inspirons have CD burners (the 4 factory options were CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, and DVD/CD-RW. You can confirm that via Windows Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and double click on DVD/CD-ROM drives to see what model drive you have, then just Google it to see what it's capable of.

In case you have either a CD-RW type drive or a DVD/ CD-RW drive and it doesn't want to burn CD's , then it's a bad drive.

Cannot copy files, pictures ,or anything onto CD ROM. Tried different brand of blank CD (Maxell CD-R) and still cannot transfer any files. My other computer with the same drive will not recongnize the...

If a problem on 2 x pc's then its probably a drive issue.

Does it play CD/DVD's ?. If not you could try a CD lens cleaning disk, it may just need a good clean out.

As you're moving it between PC's then the IDE cable is probably connected properly.

My only other thought is that it is faulty, probably not worth repairing, you can get dual layer DVD/CD rw drives for under £15 on ebay.
