[ubuntu-za] Problem burning ISO to DVD

Hi all,

About once a month I make a live DVD backup of my complete system (8.10)
using remastersys.

When I write the ISO to a rewritable DVD in Ubuntu I obviously have to
agree to the DVD being erased, and the ISO is then burned.

The resulting DVD either invariably fails the integrity check, or fails
to mount at all with message "unable to mount disk - no medium found".

However, if I first use Nero in Windows to erase the DVD, I can then go
back into Ubuntu and burn a disk that passes the integrity check without
a problem every time.

Is there any way I can obviate this excursion into foreign shoals?
