Speaking of Pressure Cookers

Looking for help. Not sure if this belongs in Food or Cookware. So I have this fabulous Fagor Electric Pressure cooker/rice cooker. Everything I have made in it is cooked perfectly. Except one: I like Vigo brand rice. Every time I make it on the stove-with a tight fitting pan lid, it never cooks. There's never enough water. I have to add more & then it turns into a goopy mess. I have tried diff. pans, diff. amts of H2o-doesn't work. I thought, well, I will try it in my rice cooker that works every single time.
Loads of water still in bottom when done. When I tried to cook it longer, I burned it. Any hints on how to specifically cook Vigo brand rice in a rice cooker?
ps I love this Fagor thing, it was a steal at $100 at Abe's of Maine(I had a coupon) & it is very similar to the $150 Cuisinart.
To clarify: I like the flavor/seasoning & color of this rice & have been unable to duplicate it myself. Anyone think that maybe it's just old rice, or just a lousy brand?
