Replacement Drive

Hello People
I have a Sony Vio VGN- S460
Tho its a very old laptop, its a stable and works fine
The problem is with the Optical Drive Matshita UJ 832 D
I can burn DVDs and CD.s but, the tragedy is that I cant read those in my drive while they can be read in any other driver. Just doesnt work in my drive. I really dont want to use an external drive, so
Can any one suggest me a drive to replace the Matshita.

Sounds like a software problem only…
