Default dvd burner problem

I have an HP Pavilian a430n. I have had the compter for two years now and it is out of warranty so i can't ask hp for help. My DVD/CD writer won't read a DVD, but will read a CD and burn a CD. The computer says it is a DVD writer 300c.

Update Firmware from either HP or the DVD burner's Website.

Check device manager for conflicts.

Find a burner you know works, test if it works.
