Default DVD-ROM suddenly stopped reading CDs

Hey guys I used the search function but couldn't find a solution to me problem.

Anyways, one of my DVD-ROMs just decided to stop reading CDs (original and burned) yesterday. It still reads DVDs fine however.

I'm kind of puzzled by this. I have cleaned the lens and system restore. Reformatting is not a solution I'm looking for. Running XP.

My DVD-ROM is a LG GRD-8163B.

I'm going to try the drive in another PC later.
