I have one and it's always done the exact same thing. It's just a really terrible drive. Sometimes if you keep inserting and reinserting the cd then it might read it, but sometimes that doesn't work. Aside from installing the latest firmware (which you have already done), there is nothing more you can do besides replace it with a better drive.
