I have a similar issue to you, except that my dvd drive will only recognize a disc if I have booted up into windows with it in the tray...once in windows it will still think it has the first disc in no matter what disc i insert. If i boot up with no disc then it will never read it unless I follow the steps below.

A solution I found by pure frustration and trying all sorts of things is to eject the DVD tray and leave it opened, then right click on the dvd drive in 'my computer' and select the 'hardware' tab...then select the drive and click 'properties'.
A new window should open. Select 'volumes' and click 'populate'. Now close the window and insert the disc you wish to read, close the tray and repeat this process. Windows should now recognize the disc you inserted

Alot of trouble I know, but it works for me. Hope this helps.

The drive doesn't read cds but can read dvds!!


If you have access to the lens clean with a tissue or micro fibre cloth In circular motions gentle 10-12 swirls and then try the drive if problem persists then your drive lens have got weak need to replace drive. You have to remove the top cover of drive with 6-8 small screws. It first stops cd reading and then DVD , it's normal. Pls rate my solution if I helped.

Does not read dvd


According to Asus there are many burned dvd formats that are not supported or simply do not work in this drive. Asus stated that most dvd-r should work but not all, and that is the only burned dvd media that works. You may want to look into buying a different drive.

Wont work


Sounds like there may be an issue with the drive itself. I would return it or replace it. As for windows...If this problem persists after a replacement, i would re install windows.
