In that case it points towards a faulty disc drive, I would be inclined to buy a disc cleaner run that a few times and see if that addresses the issues. If this doesnt work it then points to a new drive, at which point it wouldnt be economical to repair.

You may also wish to consider buying a replacement second hand unit, such as the one here for £30.

Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
