HP 940i burner errors with Verbatim DL

I installed a new HP 940i DVD burner. This unit will not recognized the verbatim DVD+R DL disk. A disk check with VSO inspector shows no disk in drive, a disk check with roxio disk tool shows this error: seek, sync, atip or mechanical positioning error.
I have tried other dvd + 5 disks with brand names of maxell, HP, Verbatim, regular and lightscribe and they all work.
I have also had success burning with these single layers disks.
The issue is with these Verbatim DL dvd disks.
Any ideas about this.
