Can I assume it used to work? If so then some of the disks may not be recorded properly (closed out when done writing). You'll know that this is not the case if they play on another machine; not necessarily a computer. It may not be your machine but the discs themselves.

No.

The problem I have is I have no paperwork to let me know where it was bought

Wow it sounds like it needs to be repaired it is probably beyond what we can do here. So I will opt-out for another expert to try and help.
