Welcome to the forums!

Make sure the DVD-RW is recognized in the bios and by Windows.
Update the firmware.
Temporarily make a disk image with Alcohol or your choice of program and run it with Daemon Tools or VirtualCD.
Check the drive on another computer.
If it works on another computer, you may need a bios update.
