I have two 8182s that both do this. Got fed up and took them apart. Both of them had a broken hinge pin in the back of the cd/dvd drive. There is a fairly strong spring that clamps the disk once it get inserted and I believe the tension on the spring is causing the hinge pin to break out of the plastic it is mounted in.
I epoxied mine and put a lighter spring in and so far it is holding up. Good luck if you are not VERY tech oriented. This isn't designed to come apart easily. Wish I could bring everyone some better news but I think it is a design flaw of the units.

The laser unit is most likely faulty and requires replacement. There are usually separate laser diodes for the CD & DVD reading, so the CD might work perfectly while the DVD won't.

Cd not working say disk not workable


Make sure that you are using a proper audio CD - some players will not work with computer DATA disks, especially re-writeable disks.
Those that do accept computer disks often only like one format either R+ ( and RW+) or R- (and RW-). Most do not accept both.
If your system will not work with any disks, including proper professionally recorded CDs then try purchasing a CD cleaning disk (a computer CD/DVD drive cleaning disk will work okay). It is like a normal CD but with a tiny little brush mounted on it, which will clean the lens of the laser unit as the disk spins.
You can also try cleaning off the lens by opening the lid of the player and using a small paint brush (dry) to remove any accumulated dust.

It's a budget model and isn't designed very well. The cd mech will have to be repaired by a professional, but it will likely give you problems again in the future.
