Session Fixation Error / sohw-1633s

heyy! I’m using Nero 6.6.0.0 with a Sohw-1633s that I just recently bought (2 days ago). The Media I am using is a FujiFilm 2x DVD-R (I know it’s cheap. but I got a pack of 25 which I don’t want to waste on coasters). Each time I burn in UDF or in DVD-Video format, I receive the error “Session Fixation Error, Could not perform end of Disc-at-once”. It shows this at 100% completion. then the DVD is unreadable. I tried other methods, like burning from image. No success… Same thing happens when I burn in ISO. The only succeful way is to burn in ISO/UDF, from an Image (0% chance of error), or normally (25% chance of error). Anyway, I just wanted to burn a DVD so I can watch in my stand-alone player. Is there any way?? DMA is ON on HDD and Burner.

Here’s the log!
