I am sure it is a k3b/hardy problem. I have got k3b post burn checks 
as all fails and I checked each one separately using md5sum and they 
are all ok. I guess it is realated to the k3b telling the burner drive 
to eject and hen reload, not sure, but anyway, the burns are ok, just 
the self check is a problem.
