Hi dottyfemail, welcome to CDFreaks!
Even the latest firmware for the NEC ND-1300A doesn't support TTH02 media.
What is firmware?
Firmware is a kind of upgradeable software inside your drive that controls how the drive reads and writes discs.
In order to properly write to a disc, the firmware must be programmed to know about the specific characteristics of each type of media. Each type of DVD media is identified by its media code, also know as Media IDentifier or MID.
I suggest you get some other 8x or 4x rated DVD+R or DVD-R media for your drive. If your drive isn't already upgraded to the latest 1.0B firmware, you can get it on this page or directly from this link.
