The combo drives use two lasers to read CDs and DVDs. It appears that
the laser for the DVD function has died. You can try cleaning it with
one of those optical drive cleaning products (sorry, have never used
one), but it might be simpler to just replace the drive. A CD/DVD-ROM
drive is very inexpensive.

As Malke posted, the DVD laser has probably died. If you decide to replace
the drive, seriously consider a DVD burner drive. The benefits are
enormous, even if you don't burn DVDs, the larger size of the backups you
can make is worth every penny.
