Your DVD drive is not working properly it seems that its lens is weak. For this problem you can contact any laptop reparing farm they may provide you a internal DVD reader just like you have on your laptop.
Or else you can buy an external DVD drive. Now a days these are less costlier and easily available in the market. You can go for LG,ASUS,Enter etc.

My driver wont read anything it said insert disc


If the disks work in some other CD/DVD reader, then it's time to replace the CD/DVD reader in your computer. Take the computer to a qualified technician -- this is not a "user-replaceable" part -- to get the job done correctly.

DVD Drive Issue


This sounds as if the DVD drive is going out. Instead of sending it in for service, ask if they can send you a new drive, and have you return the old one after recieving the new.

can you tell me the manufacturer name
of your DVD writer or reader. some times this problem persists if the discs u ae installing are not of good quality or else the lens of your DVD writer or reader might be a bit older resulting in poor reading capability of your DVD writer or reader .
alwas avoid inserting scratched discs which results a longlasting duration for your DVD writer or reader. take care

If you have a screwdriver q tip and rubbing alcohol you can fix it. Take the screws out remove the cover and locate the laser. It looks like a small lens. Dip the q tip into the rubbing alcohol just get it damp not dripping. Clean the lens with the Q tip and then put it back together.

While Playing the DVD


You probably need to clean out the pc. Get rid of programs that are not needed or used. Do a "Disk Cleanup", Defrag until it takes only about 1-2 min to complete. Get an Anti-spyware/malware as well as an Anti-spyware program and run it once a week. You might want to also invest in more RAM. 512mb these days isnt much.
