Okay, now for something helpful:

How old is the drive? The discs it needs to try a few times before reading, are they in good condition (not badly scratched)?

I have an old stereo that has exactly these symptoms, but my guess is it's just old. When I can afford it, I'll just replace the stereo. Fortunately for you, an optical drive is cheap and easy to replace yourself, if yours is failing.
