DVD Reader problem

I have recently installed a DVD burner in my parents computer, I replaced the old CD burner they had in there. I tried it out after I installed it to make sure it was working fine and it did. I was able to successfully copy a DVD (homemade, not illegal). now, a few days later I try to copy a dvd and when I open it up in DVD Decrypter I got an error saying it was "unable to recover TOC". I tried to open it up in Windows Explorer and when I double clicked on the disk drive it said "Windows cannot read form this disk. The disk might be corrupted or it could be using a format that is not compatible with Windows". I tried this with multiple dvds and it says the same thing, I tried then opening up the SAME dvds with my computer and had no problems. Whats really weird is that when i try to open regular CD's the drive opens and reads them fine. When I replaced the cd burner with the dvd burner I set the new one to the same jumper config as the old so I dont think thats a problem, and its not even the new drive I added thats causing me problems it's the original DVD drive they had that is no longer working.

Any help would be appreciated!
