it seems like a dying drive to me.
have the laptop replaced, or repaired under warranty.

A misaligned laser - the angle is slightly off resulting in patchy reads of your disks and others. Definitely a warranty replacement as suggested.

Its possible the problem disks were created in "multisession" mode and not closed.  Open multisession disks can only be read in the computer that created them and must be closed before they can be read by other computers/DVD drives.  Whenever possible burn without multisession - for instance, I never have a need to burn a multisession disk.

I rarely object to the closing of questions,  but I believe my answer is actually closer to the truth.  Please re-read the question and if you still decide in nobus' favour I will not object further.

Vee Mod <<Use the format of "http:#aCommentID".>> I don't understand what you are asking for.

I posted my comment in support of the opinion posted by Nobus. I too believe the drive is faulty. Of course JohhnyCanuck may also be correct but in the absence of any comment from the asker it is not possible to determine the actual issue. In this situation, and given the uncertainty, I would suggest a split.
