It could be the brand of CD, defective CD's, or the drive itself.
Updating the drive firmware can resolve some identification issues.
Are these cd's pressed or recordable?

✔ Best Answer
Combination burners have TWO lasers. Your CD laser may be dead or the lens may be dirty. Try a lens cleaning kit or replace the drive. I consider burners to be disposable hardware. You can buy one for $25. The link below includes ALL the optical drives that vendor carries. You can filter by connection, color, etc.
