This usually indicates a failing optical drive. There are two lasers, one
for CDs and one for DVDs. It is common for one of the lasers to fail,
necessitating replacement of the optical drive.

You can try a drive cleaner (can get them at computer and office supply
stores) first but if that doesn't work, order a new optical drive from HP.
They are easy to replace.
