Are you saying that there are certain backups that your 350 will read EVERY time on the first try? Because to me is sounds like your laser is going bye bye. Or if you are getting "open tray" errors it may just need a new rubber band.
Its funny you said rubber band... Were you refering to the "rubber band trick" ?
I never new about this until I was googling Open tray errors and came across a video where someone was using a rubberband on the drive rail to keep the laser from going to far on the inside of the disc.
I thought it couldnt hurt to give it a try an WHAT TO YOU KNOW... Its fixxing all the discs that acted up!
As far as swiching to a benQ, I bet you had a 7xxxx liteon. Or liteon period. And the benq's arnt having a problem going to far inside. Thats why it fixed you problem.
Maybe not but its worth a try as its SIMPLE an SUPER CHEAP to fix.The YourTube Video that I watched.
I watched my drive do the same thing his did... (SRY FOR HIS MUSIC)
The open tray "failure rate" was 6 out of 10.. Now its 1 out of 10.
THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO REPLIED!!
