Have seen it happen a few times and heard of it happening too many times for it to be coincidental. I don't know anything about the hardware, but I've been told that burned disks require the laser to re-focus more often or something and over time wears it out.
When it starts to go bad, the burned disc will stop working but the drive will still read factory discs sometimes. Replacing the laser solves the issue.
