Disc Not Detected

I'm trying to install a game on my Win7 PC. The DVD drive isn't seeing the disk. How do I get it to recognise the damn disc? Pertinent info inside.

Running Windows 7, 64 bit. Drive is an LG Blu-Ray Combo Drive (Blu-ray reader, DVD burner). The game is Spore (don't hate me!) and is new, genuine, meant for the PC and is not scratched or otherwise compromised.
I have had issues with the drive not seeing other DVD's before, but never got around to doing anything about it.
I've tried Microsoft's FixIt but it says that the problem is that the disc type isn't supported. I tried reinstalling the drivers but they tell me they're up to date and working. I've tried Googling the problem but most suggestions seem to assume that the drive can find the DVD in the first place, which it can't.
