Also, have you tried different CD's? Some CD's and some drives just don't get along well

But it also sounds to me like the drive itself is marginal. Replacement dvd drives are pretty cheap these days.

I booted 3 times in Win10 without a CD inserted the DVD drive appeared in File explorer and when
I inserted a CD I could read it
So I took the Computer apart and Re Seated the cables
Amazingly the DVD now works correctly in Ubuntu
Time will tell .!!
