Welcome to the forum
Have you tried a different brand of CDR? Matshita drives are notoriously picky, so maybe yours doesn't do well with your Sony discs.
DMA would appear to be enabled, so that's good.
Does the drive READ CD media OK?
Personally, if I had a machine with a Matshita drive in it, the first thing I would do is invest in an external drive, as Kerry suggested. Better chance of compatability with more media.
