I bought Lenovo V570-1066A laptop in July 2011. I did not tried any DVD's during that period. But now recently I tried some DVD's and DVD drive is not able to read the disc. But all type of VCD's are playing. Please let me know how to resolve this.

If the you are facing issue in playing DVD movies then it could be due to DVD region code.
You need to check the DVD movie you playing is of which region then same to be set of DVD drive which can be change from DVD drive properties accessing from device manager.
You may also try uninstalling the DVD drive driver from the device manager and then restart the system to get the fresh driver load.
Please share the status with us.

may try to play with the omnivorous VLC media player freeware, it does ignore DVD region coding...
Note: first time playing a DVD it takes VLC player some time to circumvent the DVD drive region code,
best to test first with a known good machine to get the knack.
