I would suspect

I would suspect that the drive has simply started dying. It happens. Optical drives do not last forever, which seems an oddly little known fact. I highly doubt a firmware update is going to magically fix this issue, but I suppose you have nothing to lose at this point.

Thanks for the replies

it is heavily used. just now reading Data CDs is no longer an option. Thank you for the responses. A new drive is getting ordered to replace it.

Once again thank you.
