Why does my DVD drive no longer recognize disks with copy protection?

Whenever I try putting in a rented or basically any copy protected DVD, it won’t play. It would before, though. My computer won’t even recognize that there is a disc in there, although I can hear it spinning.

I tell VLC player to play that drive. After a long period of time with high CPU usage, it will pop up with an error message saying something about copyright issues. I can’t remember what exactly it says and don’t have a DVD at the moment to test with.

So how do I fix this?
