If your DVD player not recogonize DVDs only and it plays audio CDs and MP3 CDs, there is no doubt that its laser pickup unit has damaged and should be replaced sith identical both in type and number. insist on orginal replacement, as Sony uses special type laser units for their EVD drives. Never use a substitute. Its number and other details will be there on its bodey, either laser printed or on a sticker. OK.
All Blu Ray players that I have dealt with are what is termed "backwards compatible" which means they play Blu Ray, standard DVDs,music CDs,MP3s,recorded CDs and DVDs, etc. yours should have no problem reading and playing back your "normal" DVDs. Good luck !
If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.
Find out what model drive you have and see if there is a firmware update for the drive.. Sometimes they loose there brain and need to be reprogrammed. If that dosent fix your problem, then the laser is on its way out.. Use a different laser to read dvds vs CDs.
