Glad to hear you found the solution.
According to an article I read many years ago, all CD-R media is
manufactured according to strict specifications, but CD players (and
CD-ROM drives) not explicitly designed for playing CD-R (and -RW) media
don't always support the entire range of what the spec considers
As you figured out, the solution is to determine what brands/colors work
and stick with them.
BTW, there is no such thing as "the best" when it comes to media. Your
car may like Verbatim DataLife and reject Memorex. Someone else's drive
may like Memorex and reject Verbatim. It can be quite annoying.
FWIW, I've got a boom-box at home that can't play discs recorded faster
than 16x, even though everything else I own (including my car's player)
can play discs recorded at 48x. This is all with a generic brand of
media (K Hypermedia - ATIP record indicates "CMC" as the manufacturer).
I haven't gotten around to repeating them with different brands,
