Welcome to the CD Freaks
Since the time it gave the first ‘No Disc’, has it been able to recognise a single disc since? If not, this is a sign that either something is blocking the lens or an internal ribbon cable in the writer has come loose. Just to rule out lint or something else covering the lens, I would suggest blowing into the drive’s tray to try and free anything that may be sitting on the lens (do not use an air hose) and give the disc another try.
The only other suggestion is to bring it back under warranty, assuming it is still under a year old and you have your receipt handy.
