Interesting problem with optical drive in windows 7

I've a problem with my optical drive. After finalizing the disk during burning when it is again inserted it is just throwing out the disk without reading the contents in it. But it is reading the disks which were previously written using the same optical drive.Those disks which are thrown out when inserted into another optical drive of another system it is reading them.
I'm not able to find solution for this. Someone please help me out.

First, Welcome to W7 forums!

Second, usually one of the first things to try when a drive is acting weird is to uninstall and reinstall the device to repair a corrupt driver if that's the cause. You can do this in Device Mgr, or physically unplug the drive and reboot, then shut down and replug it, start up and let windows re-detect the drive and reinstall it.
If you use Dev Mgr you also need to reboot between all actions so the system knows it's been uninstalled and will reinstall it.
