ya its probably the batch you have, i had the same problem and i searched and searched and couldnt figure out why my speeds were soooo slow, turns out i got 4x dvd-rw's for an 18x burner (like yours) most dont realize the difference in price for dvd-rw's, its the speed at which they can be written at, also quality. i've noticed that when i buy cheaper brands there are a couple discs that say they are already formatted and unable to be written on right out of the box...
so most likely its the fact that you got a slow dvd-rw pack if you had good speeds before
