Might be time for a laser lens cleaning, dust from disks drops on the lens over time, causing read/write issues.

Try one of those CDROM cleaning disks you find in most music stores, or if your adventerous, you could remove and open the drive up to access the laser lens and gentley clean it with cotton swab and alcohol.

And if the drive is really old, you might want to get a newer, faster drive.
They are pretty cheap.
