Windows XP Pro - LG GCC-4243N combo drive not seeing data on disks

My Dell laptop has Windows XP Pro and an LG GCC-4243N DVD/CD-RW combo drive. My problem is that the computer sees the drive but it always shows that there's nothing in the drive. I've tried putting in all kinds of CDs and it still sees nothing. I found a firmware update online and it ran fine, told me to reboot and same problems after the reboot. I've tried uninstalling the driver and rebooting. Windows sees the new hardware and 'installs' the driver so that the computer will see the drive but it still shows nothing on the disks.

    The drive randomly starts working sometimes and then stops again once the computer is rebooted. For instance, it just started working long enough to install MS Office and then wasn't working again after the reboot. When it started working I had ejected the drive from windows explorer and when I closed it, the drive started autorunning the CD. I have no idea what's going on.

Have a dell inspiron cd-rw/dvd drive combo but it does not burn dvd only cd

Your drive is not a DVD burner. The way you can tell is that it is called a CD-RW/DVD drive, not a CD-RW/DVD-RW drive.

I need driver for cd rewriter/DVD-ROM Drive LG model:GCC-H23N.

Unless you are running a very old version of windows, your CD-ROM should be automatically detected and drive installed upon startup. Check your BIOS settings and make sure there are no conflicts there.

My LG combo drive HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-H23N does not read dvd but reads cd

Try to open the device, and clean with some medicinal alcohol the lens of the drive, and clean the dust from it.
Assemble it and see if it works. In this cases there is a high opportunity for the client to make an upgrade and buy a DVD-RW

Won't recognize blank dvd

Chek wtat is written on front panel
If it DVD-RW it can record only DVD-R blank, if it + so only +R
or DVD-RAM. If it is DVD +/- RW or RAM it can record any disk.
Also chek the speed for you DVD and disk you using.
If you dvd maximum speed for recording is for example 2.7, 4, 8 you should use only DVD with max speed 2.7, 4, 8 or 1-8, 1-16 etc. So they should be labeled the same as you DVD
Good Luck

Burning problems

Windows can only write to CDR disks in its internal drivers, and to burn DVD's requires a 3rd party program such as NERO or NTI.
