Hello,
I know it's been a while but right now i have the very same issue and i was wondering if you ever found a solution to this or not? If you did, would you like to share it with me? thank you.

Replace the drive. CD and DVD use different read heads, they can go bad independently.

hello and thank you for the suggestion.
now the problem has evolved itself to a newer and more complicated one. after installing Sonic Recordnow and trying to burn the first dvd after 2 years, now the drive is totally dead. now, it doesn't even read the dvd's.
i've uninstalled Recordnow and even did a clean windows reinstall but the drive is just not responding. after putting a dvd in it, it spins for a few seconds and the light blinks 4 or 5 times and that's it. it completely stops.

New drive time is sounds like. www.newegg.com, the Lite On ones are very good and priced well.
