Just a question: do both DVD disks and DVD writer have a maximum speed limit 
I am asking because I experienced similar problem on TDK disks; in my case the 
speed limit was x8. The writer managed to successfully write some disks while 
failing on others. After I have limited speed to x4, all the disks were written 
successfully. It looks like when I go maximum, the disk quality is in question. 
Have you tried setting the speed limit below the maximum?
