it sounds like a dirty lens - most "faulty" optical drives have only a good amount of burned in dust on the lens.

there are many ways to clean the lens - i would do it like the autor of the article - since it's the way to get it really clean

you can read about the different cleaning methoths here: CLICK

good luck

Is this only occuring with one disk or have you tried many different disks? A simple reason that first comes to mind is that your disk is scratched. The more complicated one would be that your optical drive is broken. This is actually a very common problem. There are a lot of guides on iFixit that will show you how to replace it. Good luck!!!

Have a look at this Why is my CD Burner no longer burning? The first answer is also a possibility, but if that doesn't help, follow the suggestions on the link I provided.
