Burning cd trouble: hardware problem or software problem

I am trying to burn cds and dvds on my Asus Laptop L5C (Debian/sid, kernel 2.6.11)
I am using cdrecord.
When I try to burn cds, it looks as if it works but then when I try to mount the cd, I got the following message:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

dsmeg | tail give me:

ATAPI device hda:
Error: Medium error -- (Sense key=0x03)
(reserved error code) -- (asc=0x31, ascq=0x00)
The failed "Read Cd/Dvd Capacity" packet command was:
"25 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 "
hda: media error (bad sector): status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hda: media error (bad sector): error=0x30 { LastFailedSense=0x03 }
ide: failed opcode was: unknown
end_request: I/O error, dev hda, sector 64
isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=hda, iso_blknum=16, block=16

I don't know if my burner is out of order or if it is a software problem.

I would really appreciate any kind of help.

Welcome to LQ. I'm not a laptop user. Anyway, your /dev/cdrom points to hda, this looks kind of weird for me. What is your hard disk then?

There is nothing wrong in it but it's true it is unusual.
My primary master lead to hda which is effectively my CD player and my secondary master (that is to say hdc) is my hard disk.
There is nothing wrong in it because there are both master and not slave.
