I have the same one. Haven't had any problems...
I have found as I entered the DVD burning arena, that DVD drives are very particular what kind (brand) of media they like..
I stick to Memorex CD blanks ( cheap too ) and any kind of ( Fuji Code ) blank DVD's..
also, if you are burning a dvd, try to force a -booklet type ( read negative Booklet )
I have not ried that many kinds of media, but you now have me curious. I always go to a site that is FULL of info regarding individual uinits and what medias work on them.
not sure if they list that slimline, will check myself
