Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?

I have a Gateway 7324 Laptop. My optical drive is not working.

\015 I have a Gateway 7324 Laptop. My optical drive is a TSST corp CD/DVDRW TS-L532U. I was having problems burning a disk and reading one, so I purchased a refurb, same model. On the refurb drive, I was able to burn some photo's to a cd, as it recognized the disk. I first inserted a dvd and it was unable to read the blank disk, so I used a cd. I did try a number of blank dvd's, and it was unable to read any or copy. I can play an audio cd, but it will not copy to an mp3 player or even copy to my desktop or other folder. It will not read or show me the space on the audio cd's.All the drivers and system are up to date and the troubleshooting program is not helping out.Any suggestions out there?\015
