Just a thought, but I recall someone saying they had some issues with PNY cd's.  eing these are older 4x discs, I wonder if by chance you might be runnin into the same problem?  I saw you mentioned that you used an older disc and it worked fine, it was a 640MB right?

Another thought, any chance that this burner or software doesn't know how to recognize 700MB CD-R/W formatting (if there's a difference?)?
