-go to your start menu, bottom left
-pull up the my computer option by the control panel option
-click on my computer and look for the cd/\dvd rom drive-
-right click on it and look for an option to restore all defaults
-click on restore defaults

see if this works, if not, you will need to uniinstall and reinstall the drivers but i'm hoping my solution should do the trick..
please let me know if i can be of further assistance to you..
thanks and good luck,

My GWA-4082N will read cd's only but will not read any dvd's store bought or burned. and I can't reinstall windows xp because the drive will not read it.

if your drive can read cd's but not DVD's then you should be able to install XP with no problems, your drive is faulty and needs replacing. some drives will read 1 but not the other. could be cd or dvd, the best fastest and easyest thing to do is just replace the drive and don't waist your time trying to fix it. for the cost of $40 to $60 just replace it
