If you truly have tried every troubleshooting tip and you have previously burned DVD's then it could be simply that the DVD read/write laser has failed. They're are separate lasers for CD and DVD.
If you haven't already tried you can run the Optical Drive Hardware Component test.
See "Running Component Tests" section at the above link.
