DVD Burner acting up

Hey fellas, I have a atapi dh16w1p burner that came with my gateway gt5408 desktop. It worked great for a while but now it kinda picks and choses when it want to burn a disc. I usually use dvd decrypter to burn majority of my files and it would go thru 20 retries and fail. Then after canceling that process and trying to reburn that same file would go thru 100% no problem. Does anyone have a solution to this.

What media are you using, and what burn speed?

I’ve tried verbatim, memorex, tdk, gigaware, etc. I’m thinking its just the drive itself though, because my other burner burns with no problem
