    Hi,

    It appears your MaxData media just isn't going to work in your particular drive.

    Before every burn the drive will burn a small portion to the disc in order to calibrate the laser and decide if the disc is good enough to commence burning so no amount od software is going to change your drive's mind.

    You can however try updating the firmware for your drive in order to improve media compatibility. Here's a great site for firmwares:

    Be very careful that you download the firmware for your exact model drive and follow the directions very carefully :)
