CD/DVD drive acting up

CD/DVD drive has a strange problem

I have had my laptop computer for about 5 months and my DVD drive has been fine. But for some reason now when I put a CD or DVD in the drive it does not recognize it. Normally when I insert a CD or DVD autoplay will come up with several options, but it doesn't now. And if I try double clicking the DVD drive in My Computer it says application not found. But the weird thing is if I right click on the icon and click Open it will and will show what's on the CD. I can listen to music this way and I've even installed some games. But the problem is when I try to play the games the computer doesn't recognize that the disk is in the drive. Does anybody have any idea why this is do you know how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
BTW I am running windows vista. I didn't know if this was a hardware or software issue so I put it here.
