    Generally it's because the laser optical eye is dirty, or the optical drive itself has reached the end of it's 'Life Cycle'. Computer mechanical devices are rated in hours of usage. Life Cycle. The laser optical eye is located under the bottom side of the tray. The tray being the object that slides out to place the disk on. You won't be able to see the optical eye with the tray in the out position. Manufactured this way on purpose, so that light from the laser optical eye, cannot direct towards the human eye, and damage it. With the computer on, I open the optical drive tray, then turn the computer off, and unplug from electricity. I then use a can of compressed air for computers, and shoot air into the optical drive, paying special attention to the bottom area. (Plastic straw inserted into the nozzle of the can of air) There are also disk cleaners that can be used. Most have small brushes on the disk, and you apply a couple of drops of a cleaner that is provided, to the brushes.

When I Play Music through Winamp/Media Player it


That is unusual - pressing in case should not effect play - not like a tape drive would.
Are you playing from CD or Hard-drive?
If Cd - try copy music to hard-drive and see how it plays - if ok - then something may be rubbing on CD in CD-Player? But that would give read errors. Have to remove CD Player and clean it.
