SAMSUNG notebook drive, problems with DVDs

Recently I came accross some AONE dual layer discs, they burnt and played back fine in my Pioneer DVD burner, however when I played the DVD in my laptop it struggled to read the disc. Now whenever I play a DVD in the laptop drive it skips. Transfering a a file from a DVD discs also seems to take a lot longer? Is it likely the AONE disc permanently damaged my notebook drive?

Hi and Welcome!

Aone does not sound like quality media.
Perhaps the reading issues you had, caused Windows to switch the operation mode of your drive to PIO, which is extremely slow.
