There can be several reasons for that. Try to use Nero software if you are using LG SUITE. Also the DVD write speed and format has to match that of your writer. Ate you copying another DVD or writing data or edited media such as movie video or music files? Check compliance format.
Should be IDE cable...IDE interface according to the specs. You computer has IDE connections so the drive should work.
HP DVD1040i Lightscribe 20X DVD Burner/Black/Retail

Internal DVD ±R/±RW drive with DVD±R up to 20X, double-layer recording, DVD-RAM, and LightScribe direct disc labeling
What brand DVD's are you using? Its best to use the same brand discs as your burner. This is because in the design and testing stage they are using their own brand of discs to test them. Some other brand discs may be thicker or thinner and not read correctly. The "blank" disc may have already have been written on. Make sure the Nero software is loaded on your computer that came with it.
in these case your dvd writer became dvd rom due to optical lens problem. some other case dvd can read only cd or became cd rom also due to optical lens problem. change the optical lens or adjust trimmer for laser.
Nero needs to be uninstalled (using Nero Clean Tool) and then reinstalled after you have added a new lightscribe DVD drive. To correctly uninstall Nero go to Nero website to download Clean Tool application specific to your version of Nero.
