it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.
might want to turn the volume down in advance:
its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.
if this doesn't solve the problem, you would probably have to disassemble the drive completely and get it working properly and put it back together, might want to get the help of a pro for that.
Last option is to replace the dvd drive completely, it will definitely solve the problem, You can buy such a drive from few places, few come to mind, for example, www.ebay.com, www.pchub.com and www.acerparts.com
Let me know how that goes,

Are you sure that you have the file type associated in your Windows operating system to a Music player like Windows Media or iTunes? This may be the most common reason that music CDs won't play.

By "DVDs" do you mean Video DVDs?
You might consider re-flashing the firmware on the DVD-RAM, but if could potentially damage your drive so you would be doing so at your own risk.
Another way to test that it's not something the Operating System is doing would be to attempt to boot off of a OS Install DVD and see if the machine reads it at boot.
Chances are it wont.
If it does then it's something in the Operating System that is causing the error and not the drive.
If it doesn't then check out a few of the DVD identification programs available and make sure you identify your DVD player correctly. Some DVDs are re branded, from what I see there are others on FixYa with the same issue:
I would suggest going to this site and getting this program to ID the DVD. http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/
That way you can identify and make sure it's not a re branded DVD, grab the firmware from who ever makes it, backup the firmware on it now, and flash the new firmware on the drive.
Make sure you follow the manufactures instructions - THIS COULD POTENTIALLY DESTROY THE DEVICE.
Please let me know if you have any further questions. Also another great tip is to check with the forum of the DVD Identifier application because many of those users have experienced similar issues.
