I just bought these DVDs... It's weird... I tried with an old Sony DVD and it worked perfectly, but, these new Philips DVD are being problematic...

If these "Sony DVD" were DVD+RW like the "Philips DVD" are from the log, then the problem is, most likely, that HP GUE1N drive does not like those Philips discs.  A firmware update might fix it, but 1.) there are actually few firmware updates released anymore and 2.) firmware updates often times don't fix issues but cause more.  Anyway, right click on the HP burner in Write mode and choose the last option from the context menu, the one about firmware updates.  Try applying any updates and see if burns work better.


If they don't, then most likely you need a different drive.  The MKM discs are generally the best out there.  The DataLife Plus variety.  You could try a different kind of DVD+RW and that might work better.


For a list of possible replacement drive candidates, check this thread:

It contains a list of drives tested with that type of media.
