    "Combo" drives use different hardware to read and write DVDs and CDs. It's quite possible the CD hardware in your drive has died.

    I have rejuvenated old CD\DVD drives by disassembling them and using a cue-tip moistened with alcohol, cleaned the lenses that send/capture the laser.
    Might work in this case...
