Problems burning TYG03 DVD-R Watershield 16x with Pioneer DVR-112D

I have a Pioneer DVR-112 D that has been burning Maxell DVD-R Image Maker 16x and TY DVD-R 8x discs without hardly any failures. I recently tried the TY Watershield 16x and out of 12 attempted burns, 5 were failures. Usually would start burning the lead in and get no further or get to around 70% burn and stall.

Any ideas on what the problem is? Do I need a newer burner or firmware upgrade? The firmware was 1.21

Thanks
