I use Roxio Toast Titanium to burn discs and other than the drive occasionally refusing to give a disc back, I've never had any issue with it burning discs. But suddenly, it's burning one faulty DVD after another. It seems if I burn one at about half capacity, it'll be fine, if I do about 3-3.5GB about 1/4 of the data will error, and a full disc the entire thing will be unreadable.

I haven't changed anything with the software and I'm using the same pack of discs that I've used without issue for the last year. Any idea what might be going on?

Sounds like the optical drive is failing or the lens may be dirty. Buy a can of compressed air at Radio Shack or other electronic store and use to blow a couple of blasts inside the drive. If that doesn't work, it may be time to replace the drive.
