From what you’ve written, I think you’ve already checked it and answered your own question.

I just bought a new drive with the same problem as yours…it’s going back to be replaced by a new drive.

With the cost of a new DVD drive being in the $20-$40 neighborhood, it’s not worth it to get it fixed, or even fool around with it…just replace it.

You may also try to attempt burning with ImgBurn and post the log here.

Could also be a software issue.
My personal testing method is using a Live Linux booted from an USB stick.
