Hmm maybe I'm wrong here, but it might be a combination of dvd/cd drive and software issues.
If he's had the drive for more than 3 years working like a pro and all of a sudden it starts getting burn errors constantly.
I would look into the drive and see if a firmware update is necessary.
If thats not the problem, what software is causing the problem ?
For burning dvd/blurays I recommend convertx2dvd or nero essentials 10 or higer up.
Avoid nero vision express like the plague if you have big projects to burn on dvd.
Music, data or image mounting and burning I recommend power iso.
