Burnt media, store bought or both?
Assuming you have windows xp have you tried a system restore previous to problem?
also have you installed any new software or hardware? you may try removing it.....
Outside of that another suggestion would be to go to device manager and under cd/dvd drives right click and uninstall driver and reboot.

To get to Device manager here are a couple of ways, hit the windows key and pause break at the same time > hardware tab> device manager button

Right click on my computer> Properties>Hardware>Device Manager Button

Or Start>Control Panel>System or (Performance and Maintenace and then System) Hardware Tab> Device Manager Button
