I have already uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the device.

open disk management. does the dvd drive hardware show up? (I am not sure if it is supposed to, but im guessing  here). 

 

also, is this a laptop or desktop? if this is a desktop, reattach the cables. make sure its all plugged in correctly

I did so even connected it with new cables and nothing,

it just don't want to detect anything or read it, My guess is I should try a new drive?

Is it only those discs, or do other ones work? Test it with other discs to determine if the optical drive is at fault or just you discs acting weird.
