This problem started some time back. The DVD drive would randomly eject out some disks while it played the others. Of late, the frequency has now increased to an extent that every disk inserted is ejected out. The system takes in the disk, acts as though it is processing something for a brief while and then the disk pops out.
Solved! Go to Solution.

You might try a DVD/CD Cleaning Disk, and hope it does not get stuck!
If you are not one to replace it yourself, maybe a
competent repair shop in your area?
Will most likely be fairly expensive, as some disassembly
needed, plus the cost of the drive.
(The shop I work at, for example, would charge around
$120, depending on the cost of the DVD slot load drive)
I had one of those for a time, and it opened up fairly easily.
Here is a direct link to the hardware replacement guide:

Thank you very much for both the response and the offer for help Duck3. I tried a DVD cleaning disk already, but it didnt seem to work. I am not afraid of a DIY provided the risk isnt too high. So please do post the video. Greatly appreciate your help. Also, a couple of other questions: would I get a replacement easily as this is an all in one desktop? If I have to anyway replace the drive, can I replace it with a blu-ray drive instead?

Edited previous post...Sorry no video
Device Manager in Control Panel to determine current model of DVD drive.
Mine had a Blu-Ray so yes!
You would need to remove the bezel first, but a Sony was in the one I had...
