It may well be a hardware issue. In my experience, DVD drives do tend to be the flakiest part of a PC. But because the problem coincides with a fresh install of Windows (and the drive reads other discs) makes me think it's a software issue.
I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.
in order to find what brand your drive is you will likely need to take it out. They are labeled on the top of the drive usually. Then goto the companies web site and down load the most recent drivers. Then open up device manager and select the drive and update the driver with the file you downloaded.
