CDs and DVDs sometimes not readable

I have a combined CD/DVD unit which occasionally refuses to read a disc. This happens with both types. Is there anything I can do to test whether this is the unit, or occasional duff discs?

Might be worth trying a lens cleaning disk.

Yes, I sometimes have this issue if my laptop is exposed to a degree of heat...

I lens disc cleaner sounds the way to go, I am also considering purchasing one.
