Here's a thought....
Perhaps enabling DMA for your burner would help.
Add this to the end of your /etc/hdparm.conf
dma = on
"cdrom" could be changed to any symlink that points to your burner. Or it
could point to something like /dev/hdc, or what have you.
To test this before making a change, you could try:
sudo hdparm -c /dev/hdX
....where 'X' is the letter for your burner.
Don't know if this would help with the burning, though.
