Ok people. First it would be an idea to use a DVD lens cleaner, and try again. If you are running any 3rd party software/drivers like deamon tools, uninstall them and try again.
I have the same burner, and so far have not had a single problem burning or reading, unless the disc is too scratched, lol. I have used Nero 6, 7 and I now use 8. I run XP SP3 on my desktop, and Vista SP1 on my laptop.
You may need to uninstall the drive and re-install it. Also update the firmware for the drive.
