Yeah, the maximum is 100, but we've let you slide for a while. :D JK! <_<

The bad news is your drive probably died. Is it recognized in device manager?

This just confirms a problem with the drive. DVD Burners use two lasers. One for CD's, and one for DVD's. Sounds like you're having a problem with the DVD laser. <_<
