1. Try another brand of media.

2. Buy a optical drive cleaning kit

3. Change the drive.

Should keep you busy for awhile.

Regards.

Do 1 and 2 as suggested but before 3, what does Apple System profiler say about Disc Burning?. Optical drives do fail and from what one reads particularly in laptops unfortunately as they use a slimmer, smaller unit.
