Give this a try, if no change, the dvd rom may have to be replaced:-
Try My computer>properties>devicemanager>hardware tab, then click on the '+' sign on the DVD/CDROM drives line.
Right click your DVD then click uninstall.
Restart your pc and let Windows find it again, see if it sorts itself out.
If it's getting on a bit try a lens cleaner also.

If not reading DVD is a pattern (it won;t read ANY DVD, no matter if it's a burned one or an original movie) then the lens is dead. I'm afraid you'll have to go get a new one (new drives are very cheap, usually around 25-30$)
I have the same problem like you.one of the expert shared to me that my burner has faulted. I thing your problem is worse than mine cause I can still read cd rom vcd/ DVD files and movies. Just finfd new one that will give you quality output.
if you wish to burn cd's which is your burner then you need a software called nero burning rom or any other burning software that lets you burn data or audio cd's or vcd's to burn with if you wish to burn dvd's then you need a dvd burner combo drive which lets you burn dvds
