    Are these a new pack of this same disk you have used before?
    First this is very low quality media so it could be a problem, but to not recognize the disk at all??? hmmm points to you needing a firmware upgrade on your drive. Go to the manufacters website and download/install the newest firmware for your drive..

    Go into your device manager
    Click on the "+" beside CD/DVD ROM drive
    Should list your drive there w/model number

    Let me know which drive it is you have?
