SHM 165H6S not reading burned data DVD+Rs

Hi, I am having a problem with my LiteOn SHM 165H6S; it is not reading my data DVD+Rs. Actually, I should say it is having trouble reading them. It is 50/50; sometimes it will read perfectly well, other times it will try to read and then make a loud buzzing noise that lasts for about 1 1/2 seconds and then just give up. This is very irritating.:a Strangely enough though, my backup PC, also equipped with an SHM 165H6S, reads them every time. I am using DeepBurner (Free edition), which has always worked for me for audio and data CDs. I have looked around on the web and the forums, but mostly to no avail. What do you think the problem is?

Thank you much in advance,

Maybe the drive is toasted. Take the drive out of one pc and try it in another and see if the problem persists.

Ok so I re flashed it and thought it was fixed for a second - it read the first DVD I tried to load. Then I tried another and it was back to square one. I put it in my other PC and had the same problem. So this means for sure that my drive is toast? Or is there any other explanation?

Thanks in advance,
