So, are you saying it works with some media but not with others? ("does not accept every media to read and write")

Which ones work and which ones don't work?

Good Evening Otmir, I suspect you have found some brands of disks cause problems.
This kind of thing can be caused by the drive "firmware" not registering some brands of media properly. The firmware is software which is retained in the drive to allow optimum burn power settings etc., which is read from disks before beginning to use them.
There are methods of updating this firmware, but it can be risky if any error occurs during the update. The alternative is to remain using known suitable branded operational media.
A second possibility is that your drive is dying.
A loss of read sensitivity often happens with various media as the thing ages.
qldit.

It sounds like it's dying.

As the laser gets weak, the ability to recognise and use the media fails. Not repairable, a new drive is cheap.
