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.

My cd rom is not reading or even showen

try to clean it with cd cleaner. after that try your known good cd maybe its just the cd/dvd that has the problem. if still doesn't work try using cd first then dvd. because some combo drive fail to read cd but can read dvd or vice versa. also check for the cd or dvd speed, type and class.
