Something I figured out was that Nautilus cd burner is really picky. My 
problems began when I tried to switch from k3b to nautilus, as k3b wrote 
dvd-rw discs in sequential mode as default and this isn't compatible 
with nautilus - my Dvd-rws need to be formatted in overwrite mode for it 
to work.
