Suddenly, after years of using TDK rewritable DVD's, my drive is no longer able to burn to them.
I just bought 5 new TDK x4 DVD+RW rewritables and I can use none of them. Also the drive gives same error with some Verbatim DVD-RW rewritables but not CD rewritables and not with DVD non-rewritables!
So the problem seems to be with rewritables only, but only certain ones.
Is it possible that my 8-month old drive is tired or something?
Here is the key part of the Nero error log (I have also used Imagetool with the same problem, same DVD's):

I have read all the other threads on this forum regarding this error but none have addressed this particular problem.
My DMA is set to on.
Should I buy another drive?
