For most disc read errors the PS3 will need to go back to Sony. Contact their customer careline on 0870 599 8877 and they will swap your unit for another. Be advised that any attempts to repair yourself may invalidate your warranty or result in repair costs if you are past the 12 months. They are still replacing launch day units at no cost.
I had a 60g launch day unit which stopped reading discs a couple of weeks ago and within 4 days they swapped my unit completely free of charge. Even came to my work address so I didn't have to take time off work. :)

The PS3 laser has two wavelegths at 405nm(bluelight) and 750nm (redlight). the highpower lower wavelength diode on your machine im afraid has failed. The bluray light reads bluray games and bluray dvd's. the lower power red light reads audio cds and regular dvds/dvdrs. you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from sony (150+TAX+2 week wait+frustration from not playing COD4..lol)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often. it costs the same to fix

The problem is not normally with the discs itself but with the lens coming away from where it needs to be.
You just need to readjust the lens that sounds difficult but really it is not too tough.
Check out this PS3 Repair blog and get the fix you need.
