Folks, today I wen to burn my first dvd using xubuntu12.04 and after it, I
went to check if the data was ok. I noticed that Xubuntu didn't mount the
disc nor reported any errors. Trying the same disc with a USB recorder of
mine, in the same laptop, the disc worked just fine. Looking up in some
forums, I was advised to run the comand "*dmesg | grep "sr0"*" and the
output was:

[ 9329.275008] sr 2:0:0:0: [sr0] Unhandled sense code
[ 9329.275010] sr 2:0:0:0: [sr0]  Result: hostbyte=DID_OK
[ 9329.275012] sr 2:0:0:0: [sr0]  Sense Key : Medium Error [current]
[ 9329.275014] sr 2:0:0:0: [sr0]  Add. Sense: Cannot read medium - unknown
[ 9329.275017] sr 2:0:0:0: [sr0] CDB: Read(10): 28 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02
[ 9329.275022] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 0

Does anyone had this same problem? The recorder burns discs just fine and
recognizes them if they are blank. The problem is with dvd's that have been
