Comment 42 for bug 405544

I get the same error messages in the system logs (Karmic). Seems to be a kernel issue. Only seems to happen with blank discs. I had no problems writing a DVD+RW with data already on it (initially burned with previous versions of Ubuntu). But when I tried to burn a DVD+R earlier this evening the burner went bananas. That's when I started to inspect the logs and it got me here :-)
