The unit may contain two lasers for read write. One may have gone. You could try uninstalling from Device Manager then restart computer

As woodchip has said DVD units contain 2 lasers so it entirely possible for it to read CDs and not DVDs or vice versa if one of the lasers fails. No harm in trying his advice about uninstalling the drive though it might work if its not a laser problem.
