    Buy a cd cleaner disk and spin it up. Lenses are probably dirty.

    An Asus A7N266 PC I have displayed similar symptoms.
    Cause turned out to be (a) Chinese capacitors in the power supply letting a
    lot of 'noise' out onto the +5 & +12 volt lines (b) 40 conductor IDE cable
    to the burner.
    The 'fix' was new Power supply and 80 conductor IDE cables to the Burner(s),
    though by the time I'd found the answer one of the burners had gone flakey
    anyway & had to be tossed.

    YMMV

    Cheers
    Paul.

    Yes.

    I could burn a CD without any complaints from the software (Nero) and even
    verify it afterwards. But take it out of the drive and reinsert it and it
    would often be unreadable back in the same drive that had just burnt it (and
    unreadable in other PC's)
    I could sometimes get the disk to a readable state by right clicking on the
    drive and selecting 'properties' 'hardware tab' select the CDR drive
    'properties' 'Volume tab' and click the 'populate' button.

    Pressed disks would usually read fine, though not always with magazine
    disks.

    As I said YMMV, it's what I found for my machine, yours may simply be that
    the drive has gone flakey. Take it out an try it in another PC.
    In my case I knew it had to be something else as I'd already been down the
    'replace the drive' path, and could take the CDR drive out of the machine,
    put it in another machine and it would work just fine.

    Cheers
    Paul.
