Have you checked the autorun parameters on the drive properties.

If by all other discs you mean cd's what are the dvd's commercial movies are you saying the drive does not even see them to explore

Don't forget that you have two lasers in the drive sounds like the dvd one has gone pop, could try cleaning it, otherwise a new dvd read/write drive will only cost about £15 from somewhere like ebuyer
