Are you trying to burn original content to a DVD, storing data on a DVD, or are you backing up some of your own film DVDs?

From one newb to another, please go back to post #3 and answer the questions that chas0039 is asking you.
Perhaps you didn’t see it on the first go…

If you have a 4 years old DVD burner, I seriously doubt that you will be able to burn currently available media. Probably you have a 2x or a 4x burner, and these are not more supported by developers, so almost certainly there is no firmware able to write correctly on 16x certified discs.
