David, can you create an image with K3b and burn from that with the
software that does work for you?

Open K3b, select 'New Audio CD Project' and drag your files into the
burn window.  Select 'burn' and in the next window, in the 'writing'
tab, select 'Only create image'.  There are other options in the other
tabs, such as where you want the image to be created, that you can
fiddle with.

K3b will create an image of an audio CD for you that you should be able
to burn onto a CD with whatever software works for you.

I know this is only a temporary 'fix', but it'll get you burning while
you figure out what's up with your drive using native Linux apps.
