All dvd functions of my dvd/rw drive not working

My computer recognizes my aopen dvd/rw drive as a cd drive, but no dvd’s work at all. My OS is windows 98se and thanks in advance.

Hi and Welcome!

If DVD media don’t work at all (reading and writing), then probably the laser unit is bad. Time to get a new one or have it replaced if it is still under warranty.
Maybe you can try the drive in another computer in order to sort out system issues.
