    May be your DVD drive's lens in dirty. Better get a lens cleaner CD and clean it. Otherwise uninstall it and reinstall back from the Device Manager.

    All the DVD drives have got two lasers, one for reading CDs and one for DVDs. If the laser has broken then the drive will not read DVDs. You'll have to replace it for that.

    As I experienced earlier with more than 3 drives,
    DVD-Rom Player & DVD-Combo Drive (which only read DVD's & Read/Write CDs) appeared with same problem after completing 1 & half year.

    My age old Sony DRU-810A still read/write both.
    so solution is invest in DVD-Writers which are very cheap these days.
