Not all DVD drives will burn. If it simply says "DVD ROM" (as you mention) on it, then it's pretty much guaranteed not to--it only reads discs. It needs to be a DVD-R/RW. If it is a writer, then you may have a hardware failure. If not, then you'll need to purchase and install a "writable" drive of some sort.
