Assumed the software and hardware is ok, burning shouldn't be an issue.
Did you test DVDs from different batches?

The checksums for the downloaded ISO is what you need to compare before
the burning! K3b automatically shows it before burning!

An issue is the DVDs durability. DVDs and CDs aren't backup medias.
DVDRAM could be used for backups, but using them usually is a PITA.
