You could try cleaning the lens.

If that’s not the cause the drive is failing
It just hasn’t completely stopped working.

Also how does it do with commercial DVD’s ?

works fine with commercial DVD’s,
im afraid of cleaning the lens because i dont want to break them or something

It’s not as hard as you might think .

There are cleaning discs but some people claim they can mess up a drive .

The simplest cleaning is using canned compressed air.
Spray some in the open drive door . Use a light touch is just small dust .
If that doesn’t do it then you need to use some cleaning solution made for getting
"scum" off the lens .
Or try a cleaning disc.
Right now it’s barely working so you don’t have much to lose.
