LG GSA-2166D Media Compatability Issue

I am not sure if this is the forum to properly adress this problem so feel free to move it if it’s not. I bought an LG GSA-2166D Super Multi about 2 months ago. Since that time I have been completely unsucessful in finding a CD-R that it will burn well with. Right now I have Verbatim CD-Rs, but the drive does not recognize them. No problems with the Verbatim DVD-R and DVD-RWs, though. I am currently using the most upto date Firm 1.01 from the LG website. This burner shows up in My Computer as a DVD-RAM, not sure if that helps. Does anyone have suggestions as to the correct CDR media to use with this burner? Thanks. :confused:
