samsung laptop blueray/dvd drive making ominous noises with SOME discs

hello all. i have a 4 month old windows 7 samsung sens series 550P5C/550P7C laptop, with a TSST corp DVDWBD TS-LB23D (SC02) dvd/blue ray drive. recently it has started making a disturbing rattling noise when i put a game disc in, however it doesn't when i try a movie dvd. its also a bit iffy in terms of performance when i try to install or play a game. i've gone through samsung's TSST support website and installed the latest drivers, to no noticeable improvement. i was willing to write it off as a broken component, if it wasn't for the fact it works fine with some dics but not others. any ideas?

cheers jonathan

I can only suggest that it may be down to the quality of the Game CD and how many times you use them as compared to a DVD movie. Try cleaning the discs first.
