If it will not read anything then something is wrong with your disk drive, you can pay to have this repaired or do it yourself, disk drive replacements can be easily found on eBay for not very much, however i would recommend cleaning the disks you are trying to play in case the problem is a simple case of a bad disc. Hope this helped.
You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement. To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.
You may have noticed that this has happened over time, and you play video games much more than you play dvds. Here are some steps you may trouble shoot with:
1.Try updating the firmware by simply connecting to the internet. 2.If the above solution did not work unfortunately, your laser diode for reading Game Discs may have burned out. Try taking it to a store, which fixes video games consoles near you. Ask to either replace the laser diode, the whole disc reader all together, or to try pot calibrating the diode.
It sounds like the drive is failing. If it will turn on, but can't read any media then I would suggest cleaning it, checking it for warranty replacement, or exchanging it at the place you purchased it, if it is possible.
Very odd that it will play Bluray DVDs but not games. It could be an issue with the harddrive since many games store important information the harddrive and then read it off of there. I suppose the issue could be cropping up because the PS3 cannot access that information on your harddrive thus causing it to fail to play those titles.
What you could try is backing up all the information you have on your harddrive and then formatting it etc. This should clear any corruption. To test if it is indeed any corrupted data then you can test a newly formatted harddrive and see if that allows you to play games just fine. If you have a spare 2.5" SATA HDD lying around, then go ahead and use that as your test drive (keep in mind it will have to be formatted by the PS3 etc).
There are several things you can do to try and solve your problem:
Make sure that the DVDs you try to play are encoded for the right region.
Make sure that the transportation lock (usually a plastic screw on the bottom of the unit), is not engaged.
Turn off player with disc inserted, unplug temporarily from wall outlet, plug back in and turn back on.
