Are the discs Originals or Copies of the Originals? If they are copies then I am surprised they ever worked at all. If they are genuine Original discs, either they may have become corrupted/damaged/scratched/finger-smudged or the dvd/cd rom drive lasers may need cleaning.

see if you have starforce. hardware, device manager, view, show hidden devices, nonplug and play drivers, right click on any starforce and choose disable.

Do you have any Virtual Drives installed ? If so. they could be your problem.
