Nero 5.5 write error with Imation CD-R

I am not able to write to Imation CD-R discs
I get the following after doing a CD test:

Nero CD Speed Test results
General Information

Operating System Windows 98 SE
Drive Memorex 52MAXX 2452AJ
Firmware Version 6WS3
Serial Number
Disc Blank
Capacity 79:59.74

Time Elapsed Action
[14:28:59] Starting Write Transfer Rate Test
[14:36:19] Error - WRITE ERROR (030C00)

I am running the latest firmware and understand this is older Nero, but all other brands of CD-R work fine. I have returned the discs once already thinking they were just a bad run, but the second batch is useless also.

Any suggestions?
