SOHW-1633S DVD-R burn errors

Not too long ago I started getting a variety of burn errors at different speeds with specifically DVD-R’s. I’m fully able to read DVD±R’s, Any type of CD aswell, I can burn any CD and have been able to successfully burn a DVD-RW, but I’ve tried 4 or 5 seprate burns on the DVD-R’s I’ve had (and that have worked up until recently) at different speeds. I’ve checked for most errors on the forums, DMA is on, the Firmware is the latest for the drive as far as I’ve been able to find (BS0Y) and doing the best I can at removing all the other burning apps residue on my system along with reinstalling an OEM Nero 6.3.1.26 disc I know has worked. (And did for the DVD-RW burn and some audio CD’s I did today)

Burning the DVD’s at 8x leaves a ring about 1cm wide that has data, then another 2cm wide ring thats lighter (like the drive half-tried to burn it) 4x seems to almost work but gives a write error. (the disc looks like previous good burns)

I’m utterly confused at what the issue is, because I had to update the drive’s firmware to read the blanks the first time around, and was backing up data just fine. And the DVD-RW working fine just throws me. :frowning:
