CD Burning Problem

hey folks,

Lately i've had a recurring problem with the cd-r's my burner has been writing. at first I thought it wasnt very often (maybe 1 in 15 discs) and i thought perhaps it was some cheap no-name discs i got on freecycle, but since then (5 months or so) it has gotten more frequent (like 9 out of 10...).

the drive isnt very old (purchased OEM in 2010)

I've tried different blank media, different burning software, cleaning the laser and re-installing it. not sure what else to try... could my drive be burning out or something? it doesnt have any problem with dvds, but does occasionally give false error messages telling me the dual-layers werent successfully burned when they actually play just fine.

any advice would be appreciated
