If your LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive
w/LightScribe does not read disc, burn cds or dvd, then it means there is a problem with the lens of the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive
You will have to replace the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive
w/LightScribe or have the lens replaced.
Be sure not to use the LG SecurDisc 20x Internal Double-Layer DVD RW/CD-RW Super Multi Drive
w/LightScribe to watch movies as that weakens the lens easily.
Should be IDE cable...IDE interface according to the specs. You computer has IDE connections so the drive should work.

Your original CDROM drive is likely an IDE interface (large rectangular connector), where as the new one is a SATA interface (small narrow connector). If your original is an IDE, the simplest solution is to return the SATA and purchase an IDE DVD.
