"ERROR: Please try to use the 'generic-mmc-raw' driver."

Try the suggestion that the output spat at you. The generic-mmc and generic-mmc-raw drivers are usually sufficient for almost every drive. Try to change the driver that cdrdao uses.

You can verify if this is true by attempting your burn from the CLI. man cdrdao will give you the clues, if you read it carefully (coming from one who has pieced together what it means). I suspect that if you do that, you'll write the disk just like stick.
