CD drives aren't capable of reading DVDs, only DVD and Blue-Ray drives are capable of reading both DVDs and CDs. U can take a look inside(lack of grease on sled screw or dirt lens or bad motor) or replace with DVD Writer(they are cheap).

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.
