dvds fail to burn

hi all,

I've been wanting to back up some data with my new dvd burner. Unfortunately, it doesn't want to work in linux. This exact same problem occurs in both Suse 9.1 and Ubuntu 5.10. Here is the Gnomebaker log:

Executing 'mkisofs -V Backup 051127 -p -iso-level 3 -l -R -hide-rr-moved -J -joliet-long -gui -graft-points Pan=/data2/backup save/Pan MtoZ=/data2/backup save/MtoZ | builtin_dd of=/dev/hdc obs=32k seek=0'
INFO: UTF-8 character encoding detected by locale settings.
Assuming UTF-8 encoded filenames on source filesystem,
use -input-charset to override.

/dev/hdc: engaging DVD-R DAO upon user request...

/dev/hdc: "Current Write Speed" is 16.4x1385KBps.

:-[ WRITE@LBA=8002c1d0h failed with SK=2h/ASC=04h/ACQ=08h]: Resource temporarily unavailable
:-( write failed: Resource temporarily unavailable
/dev/hdc: flushing cache

Any ideas? The dvd burner is supposed to burn at 16x and the discs I'm using are supposed to be good for it, so it shouldn't be that. Especially because in Suse it won't even go past 4x speed in actual use, regardless of my settings. I'm using Ubuntu now, but I don't think this problem is distro-specific.

Hope someone can help me out.
