Have you tried cleaning the lens inside the drive? (you can buy special cd lens cleaning kits that will do this for you). If that doesn't help, then it may well be that the drive is simply worn out.
Before giving up on it though, I would be worth trying the drive in another system first, just to make sure. If this isn't an option for you, then try changing the IDE ribbon cable & connect the drive to one of the other power (molex) connectors on the power supply.

They're not expensive but try to go for a well known brand name.
The CD you can see in that link is placed in the cdrom drive, just like any other CD would be. It has a few soft bristles on it that clean the laser lens as the CD spins in the drive.
