I was burning a disk with using a DVD+R in my Bluray drive with k3b and
it failed with:

[growisofs]   757956608/3970514944 (19.1%) @0.0x, remaining 7:16 RBU 100.0% UBU 100.0%
[growisofs] :-[ WRITE at LBA=5a5c0h failed with SK=3h/WRITE ERROR]: Input/output error
[growisofs] :-( write failed: Input/output error
[growisofs] /dev/sr1: flushing cache
[growisofs] /dev/sr1: closing track
[growisofs] /dev/sr1: closing session
[growisofs] :-[ CLOSE SESSION failed with SK=5h/SESSION FIXATION ERROR - INCOMPLETE TRACK IN SESSION]: Input/output error

After that I have been unable to burn any DVD. When I insert a DVD to
either drive (both are burners) ubuntu doesn't recognize it as a device
under the Available Devices icon on the desktop. It also shows no media
for both drives in k3b. I have been able to burn to both drives in the
past. When I insert a CD however the available devices pops up with
Blank CD-R. I have tried multiple blank DVDs including Verbatim DVD+RW
previously written (mounts only on the CD/DVD drive, not the Bluray
drive), Memorex DVD+R DL (neither drive recognizes it), Platinum DVD-R
(neither recognizes it), Sony DVD+R (neither recognizes it), and Memorex
DVD+R (neither recognizes it). The CD/DVD drive recognized a DVD that
has something on it whether burned or commercial but the Bluray doesn't
recognize any DVDs.
