Please see the comments I posted to Bug #199040.

I have not been able to burn dvd's since the upgrade to hardy. I have
two ubuntu machines both of which burned dvd's before the upgrade
without any troubles.

With the 32 bit machine I can format, but even this fails with the 64.

:-( write failed: Input/output error
/dev/cdrw1: flushing cache
/dev/cdrw1: writing lead-out

Note that after mucking with the system, the dvd mounted as /dev/cdrom
instead of /dev/cdrom1 and then I was able to burn dvd rws. I noted what
I think I did (basically I tried rollbacks) under bug #199040, but
currently it mounts as cdrom1 and fails.

I wonder if burning dvd's is low priority?
