DVD drive stops reading DVD's

My DVD drive NEC ND 2500A has stopped reading DVD's. Funny thing is, it is still reading audio CDs without any problem. This drive has been working perfectly uptil now. Any help would be appreciated. My wife was using the computer after which this function stopped functioning. She cannot remember doing anything out of the ordinary. I wonder if there is a box somewhere to place a tick in to allow this function. She may have inadvertantly taken the tick off.

It could be that the DVD laser has gone kaput but the CD equivalent is still OK.

Thanks Stuartli. Problem was solved by getting and installing a new DVD player.
