I'd suggest that your CDROM drive is failing.  If the computer is still under warranty, get it replaced.  Otherwise, new CDROM drives are quite inexpensive.  You might just have a dirty lens but in my experience the solution is never as simple as cleaning the optics.  Other than long-term operation in a very dirty environment, I've not run into a dirty lens problem.
