Hi and Welcome!

unfortunately, the inability to handle either CD or DVD media is a sign for a laser unit that went bad. The drive then needs to be replaced.

What you could try is:
Try the drive in another computer or
Try if you can boot your computer from a bootable DVD (Linux or Vista/Win7 install disc)
