Hi
It happens sometimes cateltsen.
Either discs are not recognized by the drive because the firmware doesn’t have them in the list or due to quality issues (CD-R/RW or DVD-/+R/RW) or because they are not “good” anymore - all discs, including the ones from commercial stuff, can become useless due to “bad” isolation of the layer were the info stays (discs lifespan is not a constant).
Obviously, you can have system or drive related problems also. But, as you say you did update your drive you have to make atempts to sort them out.
