Sounds like toast to me. Optical ROM/Burner drives are cheap,
get a new one.

Just another stupid saying...

- Could be Bad CD/DVD media (discs) as well.

- Could be an intermittent issue. Electronics sometimes die
slowly.

- Look for a firmware update for the device.

- You could possibly try a DVD/CD ROM Laser Lens cleaner (they're cheap).
