If you're lucky, it'll just need cleaning, but it may be the laser has become misaligned or died so you may have to replace the drive (It uses separate lasers for CD's & DVD's or has power switching for a single laser which may have failed.)>

The software as not loaded the drivers. The reason that it will read CD's is that windows loads a generic driver just for CD-ROM's
