Default Problems with DVD drive - won't read DVDs

It does read CDs, and will play them, and it makes a lot of spinny noises when I put a DVD in, but won't play/recognise them.

Its jumpers have it set as the slave drive, its location is shown as 1(1) in device manager, which says it's working fine, and I have another dvd drive set as master, which plays everything fine.

Any advice?
