Depending on how old your drive is, it could be the laser is faulting, or you may need to update the firmware. If the laser is at fault try a lens cleaner cd and if no change try the below solution or you mayneed to replace the drive as they are inexpensive to replace. There could be a problem with the burning programme, so try a different one if possible, ensure you have adequate memory for the burning process of the disc and enough hard drive space for the burning programme to save the temp image to your drive before burning.
