\015\012For a DVD Drive to read a DVD, it uses a different laser than it would to read a CD.
\015\012I have ran into this issue several times on laptops and normally its just the Drive was cheap or old. Replacement of the Optical Drive always fixes that problem. Average DVD-RW Slim model is around $59-79. It is a simple replacement, normally only one screw and then its removable.
You could try a DVD lens cleaning DVD kit. You can usually find them at video rental or retailers that have a fairly large movie section.
