either the cds are too scratched or have finger prints or marks on them and need a clean or you need to get a laser lense cleaner to try and clean the lense on your cd / dvd drive and if that does not work then I would test the discs that do not work in that dvd drive in another computer and if that works then may need to replace the drive
