From the sounds of it, you have a defective disc. Have you tried cleaning the disc surface with warm water and light soap (and a non-scratching sponge or cloth)?

some people say there is a filmlike layer on the discs that will cause problems sometimes. if you wash it this is supposed to help even if it is brand new. maybe try it just to see.

Then chances are that it is just a defective disc, they do happen on occasion. Try to see if it can be replaced.
