Your burner is somewhat aged, and appears to not support your media. I’d suggest getting a new drive, personally, because most of the recent media [most 8x media, all 16x media] will NOT be well supported by the drive at all.

Maxell does not always use the same discs for its media, although it may appear as such, which would explain why you are just now getting this error. And the media which you now have–the disc model known as RITEK F16–is hard to write when a drive does not already have a write strategy for it.
