Help! LG GSA-H42L Problems

[qanda]This thread is about the LG GSA-H42L DVD+/-RW/18x8x16DL10x12xRAM. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hey guys,
I have an LG dvd-rw drive that’s been in my computer for a few years. The drive properly plays DVDs/CDs, but I cannot seem to burn files onto blank DVDs.
When I try to update the drivers, LG’s firmware update .exe file doesn’t even recognize the drive to update. Also, when i’m using dvd burning programs like magic iso, it says that there are no cd/dvd-burners in the drive.
Opening up the device manager, my GSA-H42L is listed as DVD/CD-ROM drive. I was wondering if someone can help me figure out how to make my drive burn DVDs, and even be recognized as a DVD+/- RW drive.
I am running Windows XP sp2. I have an Asus pb5 deluxe motherboard.

Check your drivers capabilities with the Nero Info Tool, post a screenshot here.
