DVD Drive distortion

I've got a computer with a DVD drive and a DVD RW drive. I normally use the write only drive to play back CD's etc.

Today when I tried to listen to cd's through the drive, the sound is distorted and crackles. But the same cd's through the other drive are fine.

Does this mean my drive is broken or dirty? I'm guessing it's not software etc. as the other drive is fine.

How do i go about cleaning it if it is dirty?

All advice gratefully received!
