Maybe there is an environmental problem? Do you or other users smoke? Is there a younger person using the computer who may leave fingermarks on CDs? Do you keep the CDs in their covers when they are not in the drive?
Try a CD lens cleaner (I recommend one from Philips) and a can of compressed air to clean out the drive. If its a one-off its cheaper just to replace the drive but if this likely to be an ongoing problem a lens cleaner could be just the job.
