one reason may be that your writer may be old and the lense must have died.

another is that the lense require cleaning.

the last one is that you need to upgrade the drivers and firmware for your writer. if its sony which you will get here.

otherwise you have to search in google for required firmware.

If all the above things dont work, replace it.
