DVD drives contain two lasers. There's a red laser (650nm or so) for use with DVDs, and an infrared laser (780nm) for use with CDs. If you have lost the ability to access any CD, it's quite possible that the drive's IR laser has burned out.
Three years isn't very long... IR lasers generally last a really long time. But it's certainly possible. Short of some evil software intercepting only CD access (highly unlikely), I would bet on the IR laser being dead.
You can't really fix it, and given that new DVD-R/RW drives run as low as $25, you'd pay many times that in technician hourly charges even if they could.

those kinda players wont play DVD rom disks and certain ones that are made up. DVD-RAM or ROM wont work. Try blowing inside the player for any dust. if it still doesnt work its the maufacters problem.
The player will play CD-G audio only, not graphics
The ability to play back DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R, CD-RW, and CD-Jpeg discs may depend on recording conditions.
