Mad Dog 16x3DVD9-8x Burn Rings

Im getting burns ring on every single dvd. I’ve tried to burn at 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x and rings show regardless. The media im using is fujifilm +r ritek r03. Does this mean the drive is bad? The last drive i had did not do this to the same media.

Ritek R03 is very poor quality media and I would only burn it at 4X. It used to be OK but lately it has been really bad.

Does it play?

yes, they do play. the last burner that i had did not put the rings in this media, its from the same spindle too.
