Hi again LdysMn317,
First off, do yourself a favor and pick up some quality media…[B]Verbatim[/B] can be found in the usual brick & mortar stores and online and [B]Taiyo Yuden [/B]online.
The CMC media you have is marginal stuff and not recommended for video archiving.

You probably have a conflict with another application competing for access to your burner.
There are a variety of ways to try to figure this out. I’d start with the lead suspects like nero’s InCD, Roxio and any other burning software you have.
You can take a look at what apps are running and start to eliminate apps by preventing startup in msconfig and go from there.
If all else fails, LUK! (Img and dvd decrypter developer) recommends this app:
I see your Plextor is an external and a good 4 years old. Maybe try cleaning the lens, make sure your firmware is utd.
DMA shouldn’t be an issue on a usb.
Have you made any hardware changes lately?
Anyway, there’s a few ideas.
Oh yeah, are you still using 18.104.22.168 that I sent you or are you current with 22.214.171.124?
