You may be able to fix the problem using a CD/DVD lens cleaner - this looks like a CDROM but it has fine brushes attached to the playing surface. They cost a few dollars but you can use them on all the CD or DVD devices in the house so it won't go to waste.
Failing that your DVD burner may be faulty, my own experience is they are not long-lived devices. The only practical solution is to replace the drive. Any DVD burner will do, they are all the same size and have the same connectors etc. But check it burns the format(s) you are most likely to use. If you took it somewhere to be fixed that's most likely all they would do anyway.
