Google the drive. See if you can find recommendations for media model/type. *brand
How old is it. How much have you burned. I remember a mate made a calculated guesss that many burners will start to fail at 100 burns something. Just to give you an idea, they are not meant to work forever.
I would look for an updated firmware.
You probably need to run from dos. In any case I suggest you do.
About the error. Try burn at a slower speed. You could try post that error.
Hope it helps.
