DVD Writer wont finish jobs

Hey whats up Cd freaks! I have had a problem with my dvd writer lately. the problem is that everytime that i try burning something it stops burning halfway. i have used alot of dvds and alot of dual layers already and they have been ruined. sometimes it does finish the job but that is like 1 in every 8 dvds i use. i am spending so much money on these dvds i hope that you guys can help me solve my problem. i have a Samsung SE-S184M external drive. thanks alot.

Great burner…can you tell us the brand and rated speed of the discs you’ve tried, and the speed you actually burned them?

Thanks. well the brands of discs i have been using are Sony, Maxell, Memorex, and i have used Verbatim. the maximum speed of Sony is 2.4x i have burned at 2.4x. the maximum speed of Maxell is 8x i have burned at 4x and 8x. the maximum speed of Memorex are 8x and 16x i have burned in 4x, 8x, 2.4x, and 16x. and still i get the same results. the burner never finishes its job.
