DVD DRIVE HAS STOPPED READING

My dvd drive in my laptop has suddenly decided that it does not want to read or play non-copy protected disks. It will still read and play ordinary copy protected movie discs. Ideas, anyone?

Bought movie discs have a higher reflectivity than CDR discs, try cleaning the drive with a lens cleaner.

as bat said try cleaning-remember from centre outwards
