Default Weird DVD Player Problem...

I have been using an External DVD Player for around a year just fine but I just noticed today that when I put a blank DVD in, the drive doesn't recognize it. It doesn't even play some videos I burned on a friends DVD player.

I can't even open the drive in My Computer, it just says G: Is not accessible. Incorrect Function.

The moment I pop in Quake 4, Battlefield 2 DVDs, the drive starts thinking and boom the popup screen comes out and it reads it fine. It also seems to read some DVDs I burnt which have video files on it.

I have no idea why it doesn't recognize blank and certain DVDs though. I have tried to change USB ports, un/reinstall drivers, uninstall the drive. I just don't seem to see it doesn't work anymore. If anyone could help me with this problem I'd appreciate it very much.

DVD Drive is Sony DVD RW DRX-710UL
