It sounds like a problem with the loading mechanism.

I would say:
-replace the loading belt
-add a little grease to the loading gears (that should stop the squeaking)

If that doesn't solve the problem, check if the laser mechanism works correctly by using a good audioCD, and play it to the end (any ticks in the audio playback?)

btw, I'm dutch, so you could ask questions in Dutch also (and a lot of other people here are too). But this forum is English, so it may be helpful for others if done in English.
