Answers :

The light from DVD laser has a smaller wavelength (640 nanometers) than the light from the laser in a CD (780 nanometers)

A DVD/CD player has different laser beams. So if one is damage, the other can still function. In your case, the DVD laser beam/lens is probably damaged. It is hard to repair the problem and DVD reader/writers are cheap these days that it is better to get a new than to repair your old one.
