Linux input/output error invalid program cannot read data on some CD-Rs and DVD-Rs on ASUS BW-16D1HT

I've never seen this before in all of my years.  I have some very old CDs and DVDs 12-15 years old that seem not to work in this BD-R/DVD-R/CD-R Asus drive.

The discs are fine actually and ironically they even work fine on a normal LG USB based BD-R drive!

Here are the errors in Linux:

Basically you can read the directory structure and browse it but no actual data from any file even though the discs themselves are fine and 100% working in another drive.

Drives in question:

sudo wodim --devices
wodim: Overview of accessible drives (2 found) :

 1  dev='/dev/sg4'    rwrw-- : 'HL-DT-ST' 'BD-RE WP50NB40'
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

Just to clarify again the Asus has a problem with a lot of my discs whereas the LG works with everything.  I would have thought the USB powered LG would be more likely to have issues.

I suspect this is some firmware bug in the Asus.  For now I'll use the LG or plugin an old DVD-R SATA based drive.
