Your reference to L:ightScribe indicates this is a really OLD PC -- probably more than ten years old.

 

I mention that because the lens covers in optical drives get dirty over time and eventually, that produces the very problem you are describing -- especially if these same discs read OK in other PCs.

 

You need to go online and look to buy a lens cleaning kit -- these have a disk with "whiskers" on it that brush the optical drive lenses clean when it rotates.

OK, then you need to check if "autorun" is enabled because if it is, when you insert an optical disk, the PC is going to try and run it or boot from it automatically. If you disable that, then nothing will happen when you insert a disk, so you can then decide what to do based on the type of disck.
