Over time this seems to 'damage' the drive, although the drive is not actually damaged. Two things I have noticed are 1: the laser wears out quicker, and 2: the spindle (disc motor) wears out quicker/loses grip. The 2nd being the most common of the two.
There are quick fixes to your problem but the only solution is to replace the drive with a new one.

What i think happens is that the laser gets less sensitve and because burned disks are not as reflective as retail they are the first to stop working once the laser starts to wear out.
Changing the laser in the lite-on is very easy so i would give that a try if i were you.

I have an old xbox which a friend of mine let me have when he messed up putting the hacked firmware on it, its a hitachi drive would the laser from that be ok in my liteon drive?
Nope, Hitachi and Samsung lasers are interchangable and Ben-Q and Lite-on lasers are interchangable.
You should send the hitachi drive board off to me. I can probably get the drive key from it and then you could fix his box with a new drive. I assume it still boots up to the dashboard right?
PM me if you would like more info about my Key recovery service.
