The Verbatim problem emanates from the Moser Baer source, I believe. Time for some MBI bashing: Not only is the mechanical quality (surface, lacquer) of their discs bad, but they also have a bad QC!
Your LG will produce nice burns with nice media. I would recommend Verbatim 16x DVD+R (Made in Taiwan), Verbatim 8x DVD+R or -R (Made in Taiwan), or Taiyo Yuden 8x DVD+R or -R.
Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD+R or -R, Verbatim 16x DVD-R (Made in Taiwan), Maxell 8x DVD+R and Maxell 16x DVD+R or -R will be good too.
