i just bought this pc a couple months ago. its a hp pavilion p7-1254
it has a hp dvd rw ad-7250h5 sata cdrom device.
i just tried to instal a game and it will not read the disc. it doesn't give an error or anything. if i click on the dvd rom in my computer screen the drive ejects and a window pops up saying please insert a cd. i tried putting in a music cd and it will not read it. i put in a blank cd and it will read a blank cd. i tried to do the odd troublshoot on the blank cd and it says there is a write error. i then tried putting in a game i just installed a month ago and it will not read that either. there are no scratches on these disc and they read just fine in other computers. i am running windows 7.
please advise what to do to fix this problem

On my HP Pavilion a6040n PC, the lightscribe DVD Super Multi Drive/CD writer can't format hp dvd+rw 4.7 GB discs.
Windows says I have to update to Windows 8.
Do you have a solution?
