7.2.1 burning mystery... is the case solved?

Using 7.2.1. Didn't have any burning problems until the other day. Toshiba RS-TX60. Here's the mystery and a possible clue to what's going on. Appreciate any insights or observations about my saga.

Had failures trying to record twelve 1/2 hour exercise shows.

2 DVD-Rs failed (TDK 8x). A DVD-RW failed (Riodata 4x). The very same DVD-RW disk then worked to record some movies!

Tried recording 11 of the 12 exerecise shows. DVD-RW failed (Riodata 4x).

Tried turning off Keep Until I Delete on some of the shows. DVD-RW failed (Riodata 4x). The same disk then worked on some hour long TV shows!

Then tried recording 10 of the 12 shows, but starting with a 1 hour show on Jefferson. DVD-RW SUCCEEDED without any problem (Riodata 4x).

Tried the exact same burn with a DVD-R disk and it WORKED, TOO! (TDK 8x).

All this suggests that there is something problematic in recording 12 30 minute shows. OTOH, a month or so ago, I recorded 12 different ones of these Body Electrics without any problem on DVD-RW and another 12 on a TDK DVD-R under 7.2!! Did 7.2.1 create a problem?

Or, perhaps, what this indicates is that shows #11 or #12 have a glitch of some sort that makes recording them trouble (that's TROUBLE) for the DVD burning. And makes me wonder if there's something going odd with signals and recording glitches that affect others.

Also, I noted with some alarm, that the Toshiba makes outrageous noises (the whooshing fan ? noise) while burning, and do so almost continuously with the TDK -R disks, but does very little of that with the -RW disks. That has me concerned, especially as the fine print in the TDK label says only use on 8x certified machines or you risk damage to the disk OR THE HARDWARE!
