I have been watching this bug since 8.04
I have the same chipset and a Pioneer DVR-215 SATA DVD-RW. The problem is the same in 8.10, not possible to write CDs or DVDs.
Erasing a CD-RW works in 386, in x64 screwed a media.

What I have to add here is that the problem seems to be related to
sata_via module. I use PC-BSD in the same machine with wodim and
growisofs and both run fine with k3b as the frontend, so I'm sure it's
not a hardware fault.

Since the policy now is to send it to the upstream I made contact with
Tejun, he is taking care of it. The guys from Via are sending him a test
board. The latest patch for 2.6.28-RC2 didn't solve it.

I'm still trying to figure out where the bug is by myself.
