Hello,
I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
If the same discs worked ok previously, then this indicates that the recorder is no longer able to recognize those same discs.
This could be due to:
1. dust on the optical lens
2. a faulty laser
3. a failing spindle motor
Most times, this problem is resolved by cleaning the optical lens. You can do this using a cleaning disc -

Try cleaning the lens a few times and let me know if that works?
