You should be using the 'High" DVD and not the 'Professional' I'm sure if you got it from the dealer then you have the right one.

The DVD/CD drives are a common failure, My NAVI01 died and I have since replaced it with a NAVI03.

You could try cleaning the lens, there is a fan in the NAV unit and it sucks loads of dust through the unit and alot gets deposited on the DVD/CD and lens itself, the disc in my NAVI01 had been in there 9 years! it was filthy!

Worth a try, I would keep an eye out for a replacement on ebay, I waited ages and got my NAVI03 for $250 which was pretty good!
