Pioneer DVR107D DVD Burning Problems

Im having problems burning data to a range of branded dvd+r discs, in Nero Express the burn fails towards the end with the error message "Unable to recover TOC", this has also happened on a fresh install my OS, the drive burns CDR both audio and data ok and also burns and formats DVDRW discs without a hitch, just dosnt burn DVD-R or DVD+R,

ive updated the burners firmware, ive uninstalled it via the device manager and rebooted to let windows reinstall it, ive reinstalled windows, ive even removed the upperclass and lowerclass filters in the registry as code 39 was one of the error messages a while back, anyone any ideas what could the problem could be, sys info and logs inserted below:

My old Pioneer lasted about 3 years. How old is this one?

You can do those last hurrah tests. I use PCLinuxOS and it's K3b to see if it was an OS issue, but mine failed so I replaced it. Actually cheaper than some who keep trying and end up with coasters.
