Try different cds, is it just that cd that is unreadable?

hi greeneyyed gurl, are you sure that your cd-rom are reading dvd's or is it a dvd-rom that can read cd's only but unable to read dvd's?
in most cases if a dvd rom can't read a dvd it might be that its End Of Life of the device already..but try to make sure that your disk is all okay no scratches, dirt or whatsoever...
