The best initial test is to try to boot from a bootable DVD, such as a Vista install DVD, or a computer magazine cover DVD that is also a Linux Live DVD. That tests the drive itself without any complication from a Windows installation. If the drive doesn't recognize a bootable DVD, but does recognize CDs, then the drive itself is faulty. In that case there is a small possibility the laser lens could need cleaning, you could try that, but usually this symptom is caused by the DVD section of the dual laser failing, and the drive should be replaced.
