Fedora 12 CD/DVD burning errors


Hello:

I've had burning problems on my PC which had F10. I recently upgraded to F12 and still the same errors persist. Right now I'm trying K3B which is a great app. But, the burning process always errors out at the end of the disc (CD or DVD, doesn't matter which):

Code:

Also these errors show up in /var/log/messages:

I've done a md5sum of the files on the burned DVD with k3b, and they seem fine. So it appears that it might be burning OK, but I'd like it to show this. It never actually gets to the verify stage. Does anybody have any ideas or suggestions? I've upgraded wodim, dvd+rw-tools, k3b. Still the same problems. Also it doesn't seem to be related to media, happens on both CD-R and DVD-R. Almost looks like it might be an SATA/kernel problem?

Thanks!

Looks like file itself broken, I had similar thing then file was not downloaded fully.
Check md5sum between downloaded file and one from web site.

Looks like this issue may have been due to a cheap DVD burner. It was a TSSTCorp TS-H653F model, I swapped it with an Sony/Optiarc AD7200-S and everything seems to be working fine! Just goes to show that faulty/cheap hardware can cause some very strange results.
